This summer, CTAC is hosting Henry Horenstein's, Honky Tonk, a photography exhibition that captures the performers, venues, and fans of 1970s and 1980s country music. Horenstein began photographing this musical movement at a time when he saw the world of country music changing. In this Coffee @ 10 presentation, music writer Stephen Thomas Erlewine will take us through this transformative time in country music, providing historical context and influences for the genre, as well as a look at Honky Tonk music today.
