Hello, Friends, We hope you can attend our meetings on March 18, 2018
If you have an interest in old-time music, read on:
Accomplished musician Roger Helton will perform guitar, banjo, and fiddle music at the Smoky Mountain Historical Society Meeting March 18 at the Sevier County Courthouse at 2:00 pm. He will present a variety of bluegrass, old-time mountain, and Carter Family stylings. Refreshments will be served following program. The public is invited to attend. You may even meet some of your kin.
Roger is a very good musician, so it should be an entertaining and informative program reflecting the music of our mountain heritage.
Incidentally, Lew will read from Wiley Oakley's ROAMIN' & RESTIN' book. The 5-6 minute piece is about Wiley's first solo hunting experience at age 14; he is with his father's hunting dogs, Trail and Troop. It's a bit of mountain life in the Smokies before it became a Park.
