The Old Time Band from Morehead State University’s Kentucky Center for Traditional Music (KCTM) will give a free performance Monday, Nov. 26, at 11:00 a.m. at ACTC’s Technology Drive Campus.

Students enrolled in the KCTM Traditional Music Ensemble classes perform throughout the region in a "Sounds of Our Heritage” series. They will play at ACTC as part of the Smithsonian’s “New Harmonies Exhibit: Celebrating Roots Music."

The Band is composed of MSU students John Rodgers on guitar and bass, Ellen Kearney on mandolin and Brock O’Cull on percussion and bass. The group is led by Jesse Wells, KTM Archivist/Instructor. The songs focus on music stemming from or influenced by music from the southern Appalachian mountain region.

The New Harmonies Exhibit is a Music on Main Street collaboration between the Smithsonian Institute and the Kentucky Humanities Council, with support from the KY Transportation Cabinet and ACTC.
