Sheila Kay Adams is a seventh-generation ballad singer, storyteller, and claw hammer banjo player from the mountains of North Carolina. Adams was taught the great Appalachian ballad tradition by her great aunt, who would sing the centuries old ballads to the girl one line at a time until Adams knew the songs by heart.
Adams' beautiful, evocative ballads tell rich stories through rhythm and pitch as well as lyrics. Her music has appeared in films including The Last of the Mohicans and Songcatcher, for which she also served as technical adviser and singing coach. Don't miss this rare glimpse into the timeless world of Appalachian traditional music and stories. This performance is interpreted for the deaf and hard of hearing.
