The Music and Culture of Ohiolina



First there was Pennsyltucky; now there’s Ohiolina– the festival celebrating the music and culture of the I-77 corridor that runs from Ohio to North Carolina. As it winds through the mountains, the route picks up Appalachian sounds from the banjo, fiddle and guitar. We’ll learn about the festival and hear some live music; then we’ll investigate why the Carolinas are Ohioans’ favorite vacation spot.
