What Is Old-Time Music?

Coming Soon:

This is the trailer to the feature length documentary on the Highwoods String Band called Touched With Fire. The film looks at the life of the band starting with the early days as prior to forming and the trio of Potts, Koken and Benford as Fat City. The film follows their careers from their first performance as a five piece at Union Grove, their seminal performance at the Smithsonian Folk Festival which launched their careers, as well as their South American and European tours. The film culminates with a Carnegie Hall performance as part of the New Lost City Ramblers 20th anniversary. The film will be released very soon!

This website is based in Asheville, NC .If you want to know more about me, check out my mini autobiography.
