School Learns More About Folk Music
On September 7th, ESN students were delighted to have board chair Ketch Secor join Music Director Eric Dozier as a guest teacher, demonstrating the history of American folk music to each class at Episcopal School. By discussing the origins of numerous folk instruments, Ketch showed the kids how each of our own unique origins add to the melting pot of American music. Ketch and his band Old Crow Medicine Show spread a similar message when they traveled in September and October to Australia as Cultural Ambassadors of the state of Tennessee, performing in numerous cities Down Under. The tour was sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Tourism.
