Augusta begins this weekend.  This very popular series of summer workshops about music and crafts has been explored by a student working on her master's thesis.  Brittany Hicks graduated from Appalachian State University in May of 2014.  Her thesis was titled "Exploring Nostalgia for the Future: A History of the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins, West Virginia."   Just as the busy five week series kicks off, she sat down with us to find out what she learned.
