For more than 45 years, Fiddlin’ Earl White has been a mainstay in the old-time, folk, and dance community. Based in Floyd, Virginia, White is one of few Black Americans preserving and playing the Appalachian old-time string band music that was once an essential part of Black culture and communities across the U.S.
An original and founding member of the famed Greengrass Cloggers, White’s energetic, rhythmic, driving playing style is attributed to many years of dancing with the group. He has played with many of the finest old-time musicians and his bands have shared traditional music with audiences across the country.
Reception at 6:30 pm. Performance at 7 pm.
