This lively presentation features a variety of stories and jokes to illustrate how the music, language, herbs, and even the moonshine of Appalachia reflects the independent spirit of its Scott-Irish ancestors. Paul plays the guitar, banjo and dulcimer as he spins these tales of Appalachian history, based on a book, “Born Fighting.” Middle school students learning to play these old time instruments and the general public are cordially invited to attend this entertaining presentation.

Presented by retired White County educator, Paul Brown.
