The West Virginia Music Hall of Fame's Traveling Museum, a collaboration with the WV Department of Education
The Traveling Museum previews Carnegie Hall's "Music Makers Project" which will feature film, literature and a tribute concert to Little Jimmy Dickens January 13, 2017.
The WVMHoF's Traveling Museum is housed in a 28foot, handicapped accessible trailer. Inside, students experience the rich variety of West Virginia music through instruments, memorabilia, historical photographs and documents.
The exhibits showcase the variety of music that has come from the Mountain State, from opera, jazz and gospel to traditional, country, bluegrass, blues and rock n' roll.
The presentation also includes a session with the WVMHoF's Interactive Map, a countyby-county, touchscreen map of West Virginia that includes bios, photos and videos/soundclips of 200 notable musicians from the Mountain State.
On board the Traveling Museum is the WVMHoF's unique "make your own CD" studio. The recording studio allows selected students to record a song - and leave with a CD of their performance.
