The Birthplace of Country Music Museum presents a film screening and Q&A session with director David Weintraub of A Great American Tapestry: The Many Strands of Mountain Music.

A Great American Tapestry tells the story of the Southern mountains’ musical birth and evolution through the strands of the Scots-Irish legacy, oft-overlooked African-American tradition, and through the longest lived music in the Americas—the indigenous tradition.

The film features Grammy award-winners Rhiannon Giddens and Dom Flemons (The Carolina Chocolate Drops), singer-songwriter Amythyst Kiah, folk performer and lecturer Sheila Kay Adams, David Holt (O Brother, Where Art Thou?), and folk balladeer and storyteller Joe Penland.
