The music and tradecraft of Scots-Irish settlers had a tremendous influence on Tennessee history and culture. For example, the traditional dry-stack stone walls seen all over the upland South were brought here with the indentured workers who labored side-by-side with slaves in the nineteenth century. Further, much of our "traditional" music in the South has roots in Scotland and Ireland. Scots-Irish music and culture will be discussed and illustrated through live performances by two talented musicians.
