At the MFA: We’re Museum Pieces!

Yeah, so they misspell my name. Just a reminder that the experts can be wrong! Great venue, though. Acoustics? Oh, yes. We’ll pick and sing American mountain music, including traditional music from the Northern Appalachians, which was largely¬†ignored by scholars, Northeasterners themselves generally, who pretended that the areas of isolation and poverty necessary for the preservation of tradition against cross-pollination ¬†lay far from their own educated and industrious part of the world.
