This closeness, while important to all of humanity, is especially dear in the South, a region with a very unique, distinctive musical past. Over the past few hundred years, the rolling hills of the Southern Piedmont, as well as the low-lying farmlands coastal plains and the high-soaring mountains of the Appalachians have echoed with the sounds of local, “homegrown” Southern music. An example lies in this week’s image, seen below.

This image will be donated to the Richfield Misenheimer Volunteer Fire Department, located in Richfield, NC, a small town located in Stanly County. We hope to “bring this image back home,” particularly to its place of origin.
|Richfield, NC is located at the small pennant labeled "A."|
