Folkways was a homecoming for me. I was on the production crew when North Carolina Public Television launched this series in 1980, and in 2009 I returned to write and direct three new Folkways shows: Appalachian Dance, Singing Preachers, and The Surry County Sound.


It is truly an honor to work on this production. So many of the craftsmen and musicians the show has profiled over the years have passed over,  (including several from these most recent episodes) but their priceless artistic and cultural legacies live on in these shows.
