When Native American, British Isles, and West African people converged in Southern Appalachia, they created a unique and fascinating culture. In their class, Sparky and Rhonda share stories and songs from this rich heritage. In addition to traditional Appalachian songs, ballads, and gospel/spiritual sing-alongs, their repertoire includes newer songs and stories from labor and coal mining struggles in the mountains. You’re also liable to hear a Jack tale, a ghost story, a preacher tale, or a Br’er Rabbit story. Come ready to have fun, learn some history, and sing along!
