Dale Farmer, who comes to the festival and plays with folks from SW Ohio, has made a film called The Mountain Minor. Inspired by real events, The Mountain Minor is about a family that leaves their Appalachian home searching for work and the music that plays such a crucial role in unifying them across generations. The music in this film is portrayed with integrity featuring performances by some of the most talented Old Time and Bluegrass musicians in the country, including Elizabeth LaPrelle, Dan Gellert, Trevor McKenzie, The Tillers and Asa Nelson.
Winner of 11 film awards, The Mountain Minor tells a great story that brings Appalachian music and history to life, Portrays Appalachian culture in a respectful and honoring way, and presents authentic music by employing real musicians in acting roles.
The film will be screened for free Friday afternoon at 4 pm in the Lodge followed by a Q&A Session with the Filmmaker, Dale Farmer.
