Traditional musicians Danny Knicely and Tara Linhardt present "The Mountain Music Project" on Saturday, April 7, at 7:00 p.m. at the Franklin Park Arts Center, 36441 Blueridge View Lane, Purcellville, VA.
The Mountain Music Project: A Musical Odyssey from Appalachia to Himalaya follows the journey of Linhardt and Knicely from their roots in the hills of Virginia to the mountains of rural Nepal, where they explore the extraordinary connections between Appalachian and Himalayan folk music and culture, particularly with the traditional musicians of the Gandharba caste. Throughout this journey, the words, wisdom, and anecdotes of musicians and folklorists from Virginia and Nepal guide us through this unique musical marriage. The Mountain Music Project is a celebration of rural culture and uplifting musical traditions.
