Summer Movie Series: Elizabeth Cotten

July 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

This summer, the Orange County Historical Museum will show vintage movies.  Historian and Orange County native Ernest Dollar will present a historical context for each of these historically significant movies.

Elizabeth Cotten won a Grammy at age 91 in 1984 for her unique blues style. Born in Carrboro, Cotten was rediscovered by the Seeger family during the folk revival of the 1960s. This film features an interview by  Mike Seeger, as well as songs performed by this Orange County legend.
