Michael & Carrie Kline at the Darden Mill

Suggested Donation $10

AFHA’s 2015 concert series presents Michael & Carrie Kline at the Darden Mill in Elkins, WV. The Klines weave West Virginia stories and folklore with spine tingling harmonies on voice and guitar. They present their music both as entertainment and social history, with engaging ease and hard-hitting passion. They have spent years recording music and spoken narratives from Cherokee, North Carolina throughout the southern coalfields and mountainside farms of Kentucky and West Virginia into Pennsylvania’s anthracite country. Their high mountain harmonies meld with their intertwining bass lines on two guitars featuring Michael’s melodic flat-picking and Carrie’s rhythmic back-up. To hear them and be encouraged to join in on a chorus is to be transported to a country church, a primeval forest, a coal miner’s picket line, or grandma’s kitchen. The Klines evoke emotions that touch the soul from songs such as Walk with Granny One More Time to the Coal Tattoo, all of them wrapped in a patchwork quilt of vivid images.

The Darden Mill is located at the corner of Railroad Ave & First St.
