Appalachian Folk Music with Sonrize
Monday, September 25, 2017, Library’s Sharon Lawson Room
Southern Appalachian Studies Series
Immigrants from England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland had a powerful influence on the music of the Southern Appalachians. The group Sonrize will perform some of the traditional ballads and folksongs brought from the “Old Country” and then nurtured and passed down through the ages by the first settlers who came into the Smoky Mountains. Sonrize is a group of musicians who love the music of the mountains where they grew up and love playing it.
Members of the group include: Mark Ross, Lester Baldwin, Donny Anderson, Justin Marcus, and Jill Bond sing and play guitars, mandolin, fiddle, and bass fiddle.
