About the Exhibit

"We Are the Music Makers!" educates and engages viewers in the cultural history of traditional Southern music. The exhibit includes 30 panels - featuring 28 photos and stories from Music Maker musicians. A supplemental website provides audio and video components for each panel. The exhibit highlights how poverty, geography, and age have limited the exposure of these artists, questioning the widespread idea that these musical traditions they perform have "died out."

We Are the Music Makers: Preserving the Soul of America's Music is a multi-media exhibit of photographs, audio recordings and video from Tim Duffy, founder of Music Maker Relief Foundation. Click here for more about the exhibit. For more on the Music Makers Relief Foundation, visit their website.
