For a more intimate Appalshop media experience, join us Tuesday, September 25 for an evening with Appalshop & a double feature of our very best Bluegrass films: The Ralph Stanley Story and Hazel Dickens: Its Hard to Tell the Singer from the Song. Filmmaker & Appalshop Founder Herb E. Smith with be on the scene with Appalshop Director Alex Gibson. Appalshop media & merch will be for sale and a Q & A with the filmmaker will follow our first feature, The Ralph Stanley Story.
Long time partners, National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), are also honoring the National Heritage Fellows with a ceremony and concert this week in September. We’re excited to attend the awards ceremony on Wednesday, September 26, an opportunity to hear remarks by the 2018 Fellows and meet them at a post-event reception.
Hope to see many of our DC family and friends while in the Capitol city! Can’t meet up but want to support our trip? A donation would help make it possible!
