Place, Art, and Music in Eastern Kentucky

(p.189) 9 Somewheres on the Track
Appalachia in Regional Context

Rich Kirby

John Haywood

Ron Pen

University Press of Kentucky

The authors illustrate, as artists and musicians—with paintings reproduced in the chapter and music hosted on a website by the University Press of Kentucky—the significance of learning place over generations through sight and sound. Art and music can be evocative of experiences of place in unique ways. Ron Pen gives an example of a fiddle tune that is both local and global, as an introduction to this conversation between Rich Kirby and John Haywood. All three play old-time Appalachian music, and Haywood is also a visual artist. They reflect on the relationships among art, music, memory, and place in their lives and work.
