Each film will be short–fourteen minutes max. Collectively they will be called The Mountain Traditions Project. According to a write-up onAppalachian Independent, the films will follow area residents who are keeping mountain traditions alive. They include a dulcimer player, a metalworker, a quilter, a group of homesteaders, and kayakers. The music for the films was also composed and performed by Appalachian musicians.
This is so sad that the McDowell County community is losing this celebration.
