We Are the Music Makers Open through April 17

We are the Music Makers! educates and engages viewers in the cultural history of Southern traditional music.

On view now through April 17, 2016 in the Chan Gallery.

We are the Music Makers features photo and audio documentation of Southern Roots musicians active in the past 20 years, all photographed and recorded by Tim Duffy in his quest to preserve Southern traditional music by partnering with the artists who make it. The multi-media materials highlight questions of how poverty, geography, and age have limited the exposure of these artists, causing the widespread idea that the musical traditions they perform have “died out.”

Learn more about the musicians with the audio tour.
