In Search of the Ouachitas’ Lost Music

Jul 8, 2023

This program is hosted by the Garland County Historical Society.

Join us for a conversation about the evolution of early American traditional music, from the 17th century to today…. from early rural, mountain music to the popular genres of today. Explore the music’s journey from the Appalachians to the Ozarks and Ouachitas, and ponder the question: “why is so little preserved in our Ouachitas?”

Charlie Moore is this month’s guest speaker. Moore is an Arkansas native, U of A graduate, US Army Veteran, and retired investment consultant. He began the Old Time Music journey in 2016 focusing on American roots music prior to radio or recordings. He regularly partners with the Garland County Library to host the “Arkansas Highlands Folk Project” series.
