When an aspiring musician, Ethan, happens into Bascom Lamar Lunsford, the Minstrel of Appalachia, he embarks on a musical and historical journey. Along about sundown, several musicians meet up on Lundsford’s porch for storytelling, and more importantly, a chance to make music together. Lunsford’s life and songs inspire musicians and appreciators of Appalachian music everywhere. This original musical, written by two of Lunsford’s own grandnieces, is a charming work sure to leave audiences smiling and humming.
