Songs often reflect a society’s joys, sorrows, values, and visions. Join Kentucky musician Jennifer Rose and her family in a musical exploration of traditional songs about life and work in the Southern Highlands.

Jennifer Rose grew up as the youngest of six children in a music and dance focused family in Berea. She earned a vocal music degree from Berea College in 1992 and has recorded 10 albums of traditional Appalachian music. Her performances have delighted audiences around the world, but her favorite place to be is right here in Kentucky.
