This is a great glimpse into some old Appalachia “Americana.”

Shot  in 1964, New York filmmaker, David Hoffman headed down with his new 16mm hand help camera to spend three weeks driving the backcountry around Madison County, North Carolina, in the center of Appalachia, with the 82 year old founder of the pioneer Asheville Mountain Music and Dance Festival, Bascom Lamar Lunsford.
