The Wilson Special Collections Library at UNC Chapel Hill will premiere two never-before-screened films held in the Southern Folklife Collection that were preserved this year with funding from the National Film Preservation Foundation.

Screening 1: Tommy Jarrell and Fred Cockerham (1971, Blanton Owen)

Join the Special Collections Library for the first-ever screening of Tommy Jarrell and Fred Cockerham, a 1971 film by folklorist Blanton Owen. The film captures rare footage of Tommy Jarrell on fiddle and Fred Cockerham on banjo, playing together on Cockerham’s front porch in Low Gap, North Carolina.

Following the screening, musician, producer, and radio host Ivy Sheppard will discuss the film and offer a live demonstration of the old-time music styles of Surry County, North Carolina.

This screening is scheduled for Tuesday, September 29, 2020, 7PM EST on Zoom and Twitch. You can register for this viewing at Eventbrite.  

You can learn more about the preservation grant and the films on the blog, Field Trip South.
