The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the SCETV film Juke Joints and Honkytonk Legends. Their “Gaillard Auditoriums” are large, non-descript rooms with wooden tables, metal chairs, and a bar. Their “Bi-Lo Center ushers and doormen” are friends and family who double as roadies. Yet, for the love of the music, the performers and fans leave their 9 to 5 jobs to venture down the back roads of small southern communities to remote watering holes for down home blues, country and western, and bluegrass entertainment. This film is an excursion into a larger than life culture with roots that trace back to traditional African and folk music. It explores this nonconformist genre and the people who seek to preserve it.
The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, June 23rd, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.
The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2021. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
