Join us Thursday, July 7th, 7:00 p.m. in the Macon County Public Library Meeting Room for music with Marshall Ballew.

A musical journey through 20th century Americana, showing how gospel gave rise to rag-time, jazz, and blues while ballads, old-time, and bluegrass grew in the mountains from the British folk canon brought over by Scotch - Irish immigrants. Using a variety of traditional instruments, Marshall will illustrate how all these forms developed, mixed, and hybridized into rockabilly, rhythm & blues, and rock and roll.
