Q&A: Appalachian Magazine Editor Talks about Joining Folkways Corps.


On this West Virginia Morning, Jeremy Farley is a self-taught expert on Appalachian storytelling.  He grew up in Wythe County, Virginia, and is the founder of Appalachian Magazine. Jeremy is also one of 10 new reporters with the Folkways Reporting Corps. Inside Appalachia host, Jessica Lilly, recently sat down with Jeremy to talk about Appalachian Magazine, and his new position on the team. We hear part of that conversation.

Also on today’s show, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week is a modern-day blues original by Adia Victoria. Building on a deep, intense bass and drum groove, complemented by horns and keys, Adia Victoria cuts through the fuzz with a gripping vocal performance of “Different Kind of Love.”
