The New Masters

Published:May 21, 2009 by Brendan Wolfe

The Virginia Folklife Program—which, like Encyclopedia Virginia, is sponsored by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities—held its annual Apprentice Showcase this month. It was an amazing show, with gunsmiths and Ethiopian drummers; old-time fiddlers and Brunswick stew makers; a storyteller and a world-champion oyster shucker; and, to finish off the afternoon, Maggie Ingram & The Ingramettes, the hottest gospel group I’ve heard in a long, long time.
