Join the Germantown Library and its invited speaker, Julianne Mangin, as we go back in time to 1950s Montgomery County and the amazing Fiddler of Ken-Gar (Will Adams) whose music lives on today.
Fiddler Will Adams had deep roots in the African American communities of Montgomery County from Sandy Spring to Norbeck to Ken-Gar. In 1953, he was recorded by folklorist Mike Seeger (half-brother of Pete Seeger) who grew up in Chevy Chase. Adams’ family history offers a glimpse of African American life in Montgomery County from the final years of slavery to the mid-twentieth century. Learn how the music of both Adams and Seeger lives on among contemporary old-time musicians.
