Join Poplar Forest as we welcome David McCormick, Artistic Director of the Early Music Access Project as he presents his talk: Black Fiddlers of Monticello. This presentation tells the story of the three fiddle-playing sons of Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson, as well as their fiddling cousins, the Scotts. Both families played for important events at Monticello and lived in downtown Charlottesville for a time. This multimedia program will teach participants about these fiddlers’ important musical contributions, and you will hear what the music sounded like through a performance demonstration by David McCormick – violinist, scholar, and 2020 Fellow of the International Center for Jefferson Studies. The talk is $10 a person and reservations are highly recommended as space is limited.
