Here's a video of Greenup County, Ky., fiddler Michael Garvin playing the Civil War era song "Brushy Run," a song learned from the recordings of the late, great Kentucky fiddler Ed Haley. Garvin will perform with his dad, Keith, and their band, Kentucky Memories, during the free one-day Appalachian Folk and Heritage Conference that takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at the John P. Stephens Cultural Arts Center at Raceland-Worthington High School in Raceland, Ky. The day-long interactive public forum on Appalachian folk culture features free live music, an heirloom seed swap by The Tri-State Area Seed Savers, traditional craft demonstrations, booths by the Boyd County and Greenup County Master Gardeners and more.
