At WCU’s Mountain Heritage Center

On the evening of Friday, Dec. 8, begining at 7:30 p.m., on the campus of Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, a special event will be held in conjunction with and sponsored by The Mountain Heritage Center. A concert of poets, musicians, songwriters and historians will focus on the evening’s headliner of “The New Appalachia.” The subtitle for the poster and publicity for the evening metaphorically explains the meaning of “The New Appalachia”: “No more moonshine, Li’l Abners and Daisy Maes (People ‘from here,’ not from here, and far out.)”
