The holidays are a wonderful time to bring friends and family to the museum—and a great chance to see our current special exhibit “We Are the Music Makers: Preserving the Soul of America’s Music” before it closes on January 6, 2017.
For nearly three decades, Tim Duffy has recorded musicians’ songs and stories. He has also taken photographs that powerfully reflect their lives—from the calluses on their fingers from years of playing to the lines on their faces that come from working hard and making music.
“We Are the Music Makers” reflects Duffy’s quest to preserve Southern traditional music by partnering with the artists who make it. The exhibit features stunning Giclee-printed and mounted portrait photographs, a variety of instruments and artifacts from Music Maker artists, and colorful folk art. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about these extraordinary artists and the Music Maker Relief Foundation at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
