Folklorist Brent Cantrell, Executive Director of Jubilee Community Arts, hosts “Wild Hog in the Woods,” a program of old-time Southern Appalachian music including raw unaccompanied ballads, timeless early country recordings, radical styles of traditional fiddle and banjo performed by the old masters, all soaked in subtleties of rhythm irreproducible in our time. Native to rural Warren County on Tennessee’s Highland Rim, Brent has done folklore fieldwork in Togo, in the Haitian and other ethnic communities in Miami, and in Tennessee. His unusual perspective on culture reflects both academic training and intense social experience near and far from home.
