The Appalachian Music and Dance Club of Davis & Elkins College will present duo Michael and Carrie Kline in concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, February 20 in The Icehouse. The event is free and open to the public.
With a broad background in Appalachian music and culture, the Klines present their music as both entertainment and social history. They have spent decades recording regional music and spoken narratives, from Cherokee, N.C., throughout the southern coalfields and mountainside farms of Kentucky and West Virginia into Pennsylvania’s anthracite country. Singing to audiences of all ages, the Klines perform in a variety of situations, from classrooms and prisons, from coffeehouses and living rooms to picket lines and marches for social justice.
At Davis & Elkins College, the Klines have instructed mini-courses during Augusta Heritage Center summer sessions and performed in the January 2015 Fine and Performing Arts production of “Fair and Tender Ladies.”
