    CTAC Theater

    Join us for a screening of Ken Burn's acclaimed PBS documentary, "Country Music."

    Episode 1 - "The Rub" (Beginnings - 1933)

    After centuries of percolating in America’s immigrant and racial mix, particularly in the American South, what was first called “hillbilly music” begins reaching more people through the new technologies of phonographs and radio. The Carter Family, with their ballads and old hymns, and Jimmie Rodgers, with his combination of blues and yodeling, become its first big stars. Rodgers’s career ends when he dies young from tuberculosis.

    This series is presented in CTAC's Theatre. There is no fee to attend.
