      Ken Burns' Country Music Preview – Tunkhannock

      “Three chords and the truth.” That’s how songwriter Harlan Howard described country music. He ought to know. He wrote lots of big hits and he’s in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Starting on PBS September 15, Ken Burns’ 16-hour documentary Country Music explores the history of a uniquely American art form, telling the stories of the legendary characters who shaped it: The Carter Family, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Charley Pride, Dolly Parton and many more. Join VIA Public Media for a special free preview screening, Sunday, Sept. 8 at 3 PM in the Wyoming County Cultural Center at the Dietrich Theater, Tunkhannock. Special guests Gary Carl & Joseph Michael will perform several selections and discuss storytelling through song. To follow up his first two country albums, “ Off the Grid “ and “North Branch of Heaven,” Gary Carl teamed up with Joseph Michael for the brand new LP “Songsmiths on the Long Ride Home.” Gary Carl is on the Board of Directors of Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau and a proud artist member of The Kitson Arts Alliance. VIA will give away prizes, including tickets for such Bloomsburg Fair concerts as The Oak Ridge Boys (Sept. 23) and Old Dominion (Sept. 26.)
