"Linefork" Screening and Q&A

Lee and Opal Sexton live in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, farming the land where Lee was raised. Lee is a retired coal miner and a revered banjo legend, a living link to the deep past of American music. Though now well into his 80s and hampered by age, Lee continues to perform and teach his distinctive banjo style to a new generation eager to preserve a vanishing cultural tradition. Linefork offers an immersive view of Lee and Opal’s daily rituals and inherent resilience while documenting the raw yet delicate music of a singular musician, linked to the past yet immediately present. Q&A with Vic Rawlings, one of the filmmakers, will follow the screening.

Supported by the Department of Music and the Department of Anthropology
