Express Urban Appalachian Showcase

Presented by the Urban Appalachian Community Coalition & Cincinnati Arts Association

Presented by The Urban Appalachian Community Coalition with support from The Cincinnati Arts Association, The Appalachian Community Development Association, Thomas More University’s Creative Writing Vision Program and The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio.

In variety show style, our community’s most dynamic Appalachian musicians, singers, storytellers, poets, spoken word artists, and dancers will express the diversity of our city’s Appalachian cultural heritage.  Experience a memorable evening that includes The Corndrinkers, Ma Crow & Company, Rabbit Hash String Band, Bear Foot, Jericho Old Time Band, Riley School Irish musicians, Dee Marie from The Soul Pocket Band, and the multi-generational family band, Tellico.   Award-winning authors from the Southern Appalachian Writer’s Cooperative, including Pauletta Hansel, Dick Hague, and Mike Henson -- and spoken word artist Desirae 'The Silent Poet' Hosley (Cincy WordPlay) -- will resurrect poetry’s power, alongside talented young writers from both sides of the river.  The creative spirit of community is expressed across generations and genres.  Expect some traditional ballad and dance on this stage, too, with emcee Omope Carter Daboiku weaving expressive threads together through her memorable storytelling and fine wit.
