Dom Flemons discussing African American Music Traditions in Kentucky.
We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Seth Pedigo of the Dead Broke Barons at Lost River Cave to discuss his banjo. In the video below, Seth discusses the history of the banjo, how he came across his, and the symbolism behind his hand drawn illustrations on the instrument. This piece was produced by WKU PBS crew member Neil Purcell.

Simply put, Erin Rae may have the purest voice in all of music. It isn’t just her soothing vocals that set Erin’s music apart, but also her unique ability to pen songs that conjure up the deepest of emotions. Listening to her album, Soon Enough, it’s hard not feel the same levels of emotions that one might experience when flipping through a box of old, faded photographs from days long past. And much like those old photographs that still draw from our emotional reservoirs all these years later, we suspect Erin’s music will hold up equally well for years to come.
Recorded live at the Goodnight Memorial Library in Franklin, KY.
