MADWV Member Augusta Heritage Center is proudly collaborating with the West Virginia Mine Wars Museum and the Blair Centennial Committee to produce an incredible event that remembers and celebrates a critical moment in labor rights history.
The event will take place at the Charleston Coliseum Convention Center on Friday September 3, 2021 fat 7pm. Tickets are $15 and are available at Blair100.com.
Join virtuosic blues harmonica player Phil Wiggins, a 2017 NEA National Heritage Fellow, and Augusta folklife coordinator emeritus Gerry Milnes, the two musical powerhouses behind the soundtrack to the movie “Matewan.” They’ll be joined by Heather Hannah, a songwriter and third-generation harmony singer from the coalfields of West Virginia. Appalachian ballad singer, Saro-Lynch Thomason, will open the performance.
