We are the Music Makers
July 9–August 29, 2014

We are the Music Makers, an exhibit at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and developed by Music Maker Relief Foundation, will educate and engage viewers in the cultural history of Southern traditional music. We are the Music Makers will feature photo and audio documentation of Southern Roots musicians active in the past 20 years, all photographed and recorded by Tim Duffy, Music Maker Relief Foundation’s founder, in his quest to preserve Southern traditional music by partnering with the artists who make it. The multi-media materials will highlight questions of how poverty, geography, and age have limited the exposure of these artists, causing the widespread idea that the musical traditions they perform have “died out.”

The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center
Corridor Gallery
Exhibitions are open from 12–8 pm Monday and Thursday and from 12–6 pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

Presented in association with the Americana Music Association
