Carolina Jamboree: Appalachia Stories
North Carolina’s history is rich with the stories of intrigue and passion, gut-wrenching struggle and the triumph of the spirit over staggering odds. The music of our region – old-time mountain music, country, bluegrass, piedmont blues and jazz – gives a powerful aural history of generations of Carolinians, from the Appalachian Mountains to the Outer Banks.
Carolina Jamboree unfolds in three parts: Appalachia Stories, The Mystery of Beautiful Nell Cropsey, and Fiddlesticks. It marks the first collaboration between the world famous Red Clay Ramblers and Carolina Ballet Principal Guest Choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett. The work is inspired by American folk dance forms and the stubborn spirits of Carolinian forefathers and mothers.
