Musical Journey of Kentucky
Cheyenne Mize and Lorinda Jones
Cheyenne Mize and Lorinda Jones provide a "Musical Journey of Kentucky" through songs, stories, instrument demonstrations, history, and LOTS of participation. This action packed 45-60 minute program engages the students from the first notes of the native American Indian flute, to the toe tapping jigs. The show is enhanced by a powerpoint that encourages the students to sing along, and to remain attentive to the history of the development of America's folk roots music in the mountain of Kentucky. With special emphasis on the state instrument of Kentucky, the mountain dulcimer, students get an understanding of it's role in the development of folk music and the blending of the cultures that brought it to America.

West of the Alleghenies
"West of the Alleghenies: a Remarkable Church Called Nolynn" will be presented
by Elizabethtown historian Don Patterson, along with his wife Glenda, plus Lorinda Jones. Wearing period costumes and playing dulcimers, the psaltry, and harp, they make their presentation in story and song.
The story will be told from the perspective of Jacob Van Meter (1722-1798) , who led the first migration to the
Falls of the Ohio. This flatboat migration brought the first settlers to Severns Valley and Nolynn.
Nolynn and the other early churches were important to the development of worship practices which made
America a Protestant nation and helped to create civil and religious freedoms previously unknown. The early churches
established a model for the practice of Christianity in a sometimes hostile environment.
