Taylor Talk w/Tom Hansell
Dec 15 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Central Appalachia and south Wales were built to extract coal, and faced with coal’s decline, both regions have experienced economic depression, labor unrest, and out-migration. After Coal focuses on coalfield residents who chose not to leave, but instead remained in their communities and worked to build a diverse and sustainable economy. It tells the story of four decades of exchange between two mining communities on opposite sides of the Atlantic, and profiles individuals and organizations that are undertaking the critical work of regeneration.

This event is going to be so much more than just a book signing! Join us along with WVU Musicology Professor Travis Stimeling and a whole host of West Virginian musicians as we celebrate his latest title.

“Songwriting in Contemporary West Virginia: Profiles and Reflections” is the first book dedicated to telling the stories of West Virginia’s extensive community of songwriters. Based on oral histories conducted by Stimeling and told largely in the songwriters’ own words, these profiles offer a lively overview of the personalities, venues, and networks that nurture and sustain popular music in West Virginia.
Stimeling is attentive to breadth and diversity, presenting sketches of established personalities like Larry Groce, who oversees Mountain Stage, and emerging musicians like Maria Allison, who dreams of one day performing there. Each profile includes a brief selected discography to guide readers to recordings of these musicians’ work.

*A selection of this music will be performed after the talk so make sure to stick around for the whole event.  Visit the Facebook event for more info. This event is free to attend, refreshments will be served.*
