The American Folklife Center (AFC) is hosting a series of informal jams to celebrate our living folk traditions, and to bring to life the collections from our vast ethnographic archive. The third in this series will be a ballad sing. The first part of this event will feature a mini-concert by the famed North Carolina traditional singers Rick Ward and Bobby McMillon, along with Susan Pepper, William Ritter and James Leva. Then the group will go around the room and everyone can sing their favorite ballad.

Rick Ward, of the well known Ward family of Beech Mountain, North Carolina, continues his long-established family musical and instrument-building traditions. Ballad singer and storyteller Bobby McMillon of Burnsville, North Carolina, is a North Carolina Folk Heritage Award recipient and has appeared at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and the A.P. Carter Memorial Festival.
