Appalachian filmmaker Elaine McMillion Sheldon’s new "King Coal" blends documentary and imaginative storytelling in a way that pulls viewers into a compelling portrait of Appalachia’s coal communities.
Our Song of the Week comes from Robbie Fulks, whose witty yet sophisticated songs captivated the audience. As one of the pioneers of the popular alt-country scene, Fulks has a gift for a wide variety of roots-music sounds — rolling out tunes that are equal parts honky tonk, country, bluegrass and rock and roll.
Fulks’ song “Fare Thee Well, Carolina Gals” is our Song of the Week, which originally appeared on his 2016 album Upland Stories. He recently released a new album, Bluegrass Vacation.
