The Nelson Music Project
Because music is an especially rich part of the county's cultural heritage,
we are focusing on it in several ways:
- • Producing well-attended programs featuring
local musicians and genres, including a Tribute to Curtis Matthews (featuring Curtis, Jimmy Fortune and many others),Irish Music and Dancing(in connection with the building of the Crozet tunnel), and Gospel—Nelson County Style.
- • Videotaping interviews with
musicians—a number have already been completed.
- • Planning an exhibit at the museum
- • Researching music that is
indigenous to the county
