Tryon Fine Arts Center: Same Roots, Separate Sounds: Archiving Song Traditions in the Foothills

( Wed., Aug. 5, 2020 )

Online, , , NC


This multi-media exhibition will highlight local musicians and the various multi-cultural genres they are preserving through photo, video, and audio clips. Artists include Wayne and Kristin Benson, Ella Hennessee and Mary Johnson, Greenville Fine Arts Center Jazz, Tonya Staley, Adib Chebli, and Brandon Turner & Freddie Vanderford.


Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) will present a series of free, live-streamed music and virtual exhibitions as part of their new 2020 Illuminations Through Music and Heritage program. This extraordinary series, which kicks off with a live-streamed concert on July 24 at 7:30 p.m., celebrates the international exploration of music and heritage between students of Tryon Fine Arts Center’s Pacolet Junior Appalachian Musicians and students with the Petra National Trust (PNT) in Jordan. Because Tryon Fine Arts Center is currently closed to live audiences, Illuminations is a virtual-only series of events. 


Free, donations accepted
