Over the last few months, the Missouri Folk Arts Program and visiting folklorist Thomas Grant Richardson worked to learn more about traditions in northern Missouri counties through our "Show-Me Folk" project. We have been excited to meet regional quilters, blacksmiths, basketmakers, musicians, and woodworkers, as well as sample foodways from El Salvador, the Congo, and Kirksville.
Please join us at the Murrell Library Reading Room to meet and get to know just a few artists from the region:
*Quilter Pam Sebastian of Slater;
*Blacksmith Mike McLaughlin of Lawson;
*Guitar Luthier David Cavins of Columbia, joined by Amber Gaddy to play a few tunes throughout the afternoon.
