For our final episode of BPoA, we follow Matt’s friend Jonathan Ferrell, a young man who keeps the traditions and skills of the late nineteenth century alive at The Homeplace — a working living-history farm outside of Dover, Tennessee.
Very exciting to be releasing our third episode of The Back Porch of America! This time we join Matt Kinman as he visits with the late Audrey Hash Ham, fiddle builder from Whitetop, Virginia. Audrey, and her late father Albert Hash, were exquisite fiddle builders in the area. We hope you enjoy it!
Here at the Back Porch of America we are happy to let you know that part two of Mark Newberry’s story is now posted at The Bluegrass Situation’s website! We hope you enjoy watching the rest of the making of a crooked back common chair.
