Appalachia: There Was a Time

Fiddler and storyteller Ron Short does a performance incorporating music and dramatic storytelling. He recounts the history of the Appalachian Mountains, recalls times in the mountains “when the only boundary was your own imagination and when wild hogs roamed free in the woods,” and performs the traditional song/fiddle tune “Wild Hog in the Woods.”
