I'm happy to be a part of the launch of "Heard Tell," a new feature to the Looking At Appalachia project. Designed and directed by Roger May, "Heard Tell" brings together audio recordings that either reflect on images and words on the website, or are stand alone recordings about Appalachia.
A few years ago, I recorded the Moonshine Festival in New Straitsville, Ohio, and when I saw the above image, I immediately recognized it. I also wrote about my experiences there, about what I heard, and how listening transformed me and the way I understand place, the past, and the present. Find the image, audio recording, and my writing on the Moonshine Festival here.
