About

We showcase the latest heirs of 150 years of music and culture

How does a girl from New York State go from writing punk songs to leading a honky-tonk band in the NC mountains? Why would a contractor be standing on a roof singing into his iPhone? How did an Asheville bluegrass jam spawn a musical collaboration that spans almost 15 years? Join host Joe Kendrick (WNCW-FM program director) and studio chief Tony Preston (Moonlight Mile Productions) as they answer these questions through their journey into the heart of Southern music and culture in this series of half hour episodes that includes live performances, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage with some of the region’s favorite musicians.

Exploring roots music, culture and traditions in Appalachia

We are working on our third episode of Southern Songs and Stories with the acoustic quartet Tellico and want you to join us in our journey! Like previous episodes that featured Asheville’s premiere country band The Honeycutters and Saluda, NC native son and singer-songwriter Aaron Burdett, we will feature the music of Tellico at various live shows in the region, including a live studio taping November 15th at Moonlight Mile video studio. We will also follow Tellico’s members as we dive into the Asheville bluegrass jam scene, meet some old-time banjo players and fiddlers both in SW Virginia and Western North Carolina, get a taste for the band’s influences on a vinyl-shopping trip to a record store, and head to the High Country to talk dobros.

We need $4000 to pay for production and editing, with a crew manning lights, sound and cameras. There are a number of ways to support us, including DVDs, downloads, CDs, t-shirts, and tickets to a live video taping at Moonlight Mile studio on November 15th, which will feature cuts and outtakes from the video that will be used for the final documentary before it comes out!

Risks and challenges

Much of our fulfillment will be complete within a month after the campaign closes. Many items are already on hand, like Tellico shirts and CDs, and the private screening and performance will be easily fulfilled. The finished episode will take the longest, but will be largely finished by the close of the campaign since a draft will be shown at the private screening in mid November.
