“Ashton” by Adam Booth

Ashton’s musical life in a small coal town is forever changed when record company representative Ralph Peer comes collecting mountain music in Bristol. With love for her coal-miner husband Billy at her core, Ashton hitches a train and ventures to the city with her mountain songs and hope for a better life. Hopeful, touching, and sad, this piece brings listeners to laughter and tears.

Ashton is part of Adam’s Appalachian 20th Century cycle of original neo-traditional stories about Appalachian people and their situations which also incorporate Adam’s original music.

“Country Girl, City Girl” by Beth Horner

Beth was raised on rural Missouri’s Sugar Grove Farm by a literature/poetry loving mother, a folktale-loving city grandmother, a sister who created barnyard musicals and a farmer/meteorologist father who regaled her with stories of her ancestors of both good and questionable repute. A job at Yale University opened her eyes to the wonders of nearby New York City.
Beth now lives both Chicago’s city life and her family farm’s rural life. Her stories are rooted in the rich folk and ancestral tales of these fabulously contrasting cultures (and in the whiplash that results from trying to live in both).
