Oconee, Part 6 - Oconee's Music Traditions | Palmetto Places - Episode 6


To understand the mountains, one must hear their music: folk songs, old hymns, and haunting ballads passed down from generation to generation. In this segment, music maker Dean Eades joins to discuss the history and heritage of mountain music, and a significant local instrument: the Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer.

One of Oconee’s long standing music traditions is Saturday nights at Cuzzin’s Store, in Mountain Rest. Musician Robert Lowery explains the history of Cuzzin’s Store, and how his band established this tradition of playing blue-grass, and “hillbilly” music here.
