John Fowler

The Horry County Museum and The AVX Foundation present John Fowler. Mr. Fowler will be giving a presentation on the history of roots and ethnic music in South Carolina on August 13, 2016. An interactive timeline lecture with music presentations, John connects the dots, linking music heritage relative to region, ethnicity, religion and culture. The presentation is an overview of parallels between European, Native American and African influences which played an important role in shaping American music forms and styles, from field hollers and chants to blues and gospel. Early forms of folk/country and bluegrass are also introduced. The program begins at 1pm in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public.
