Appalachian Arts Center is pleased to present Honey Baby Mine, a performance by storyteller Rema Keen and special guests. Together they will weave a beautiful tapestry of love stories and music coming straight from these mountains as part of the upcoming Winter Honey Festival taking place in Richlands, VA during the 2nd week in February 2015.
In the course of the performance you will hear a lovely old ballad, a foot stomping fiddle tune, a Carter Family song, a Jack Tale or two, a sweet family story of love and loss, and maybe even a bear tale thrown in for good measure.
