Mountain Xpress: Bobby McMillon Legacy Project at Mars Hill University will continue ballad singer and storyteller’s work

Mountain Xpress: Bobby McMillon Legacy Project at Mars Hill University will continue ballad singer and storyteller’s work. “[Bobby] McMillon was a ballad singer and storyteller in Yancey County with encyclopedic knowledge of all things Appalachian. He left behind a rich and valuable collection of song and story transcriptions and recordings, ephemera from old-time musicians and festivals, and a desire that his friends ‘keep it going.’ Through the $10,000 South Arts grant, the Ramsey Center will help keep it going.”
