In response to “social distancing,” we are putting together some special bonus episodes of our podcast, “It Still Lives.” The first of these is a Foxfire playlist—we’ve compiled several original recordings of mountain music for your listening pleasure. Check out Season 1, Episode 2 for more information on music in Appalachia or grab a copy of Foxfire 3.
