Join us in the museum’s Learning Center for our monthly Museum Story Time program. Aimed at toddler-age children and their grown-ups, we will gather on the first Friday of each month for a music- or Appalachia-related storybook, a tune or two by WBCM Radio Bristol show host Ella Patrick, and a related activity or coloring sheet. This month we will be doing a fun rain cloud craft!

For April we will be reading Lorraine written by Ketch Secor and illustrated by Higgins Bond.

About Lorraine

Old Crow Medicine Show founder and Grammy award-winning musician Ketch Secor teams up with Ashley Bryan Award-winning illustrator Higgins Bond to create this sweeping, epic Americana story about the power of music and family.

"Who needs a whistle or some shiny thing

when you've got a voice and a song that can sing!

Lorraine and her Pa Paw spend their days celebrating life with the music of the Tennessee hills. With Pa Paw's harmonica and Lorraine's pennywhistle, the pair can face just about anything. But when a fearsome storm rolls in and their instruments are nowhere to be found, can Lorraine find the music inside herself to get them through?

About the Author

Ketch Secor is best known as the founder and frontman of Old Crow Medicine Show, a two-time Grammy Award-winning juggernaut whose triumphs include induction into the Grand Ole Opry, double-platinum certification, and world-wide touring. It is impossible to overstate the influence of Old Crow, whose literary songwriting, true-to-life roadside adventures, and high-octane live performances helped spur artistic shifts in country, Americana, folk, pop, and rock music spheres since the band’s formation in 1998. “Old Crow Medicine Show were the band that made me fall in love with country music,” says Marcus Mumford.
