Featured Performers Michael and Carrie Kline:

Michael and Carrie Kline perform country harmony duets from coal mining songs to gospel, family songs and front porch music. Listeners may find themselves dancing a waltz to “Fiddler Jones,” the song that celebrates the role of music and old-time fiddlers in our lives and our communities, or those who play for family and friends or local dances. Their lives are inspired by Appalachian music and culture. Their voices carry the songs with truth and authenticity, and their guitar accompaniments and haunting harmonies get you where you live. As folklorist-musicians they weave songs and stories, evoking the times that really matter, time with family and friends, spiritual times, wrapped in a patchwork quilt of vivid imagery. Kitchen songs. You can smell the biscuits baking.

*Masks encouraged but optional. Unvaccinated attendees are encouraged to wear masks;

*Performers can start signing up at 6:15. Names will be drawn and a random order will be created. Expect to play 2-4 songs (10-15 minutes), depending upon the number of performers.
