Q: Do you accept donations for the music program you are involved with in Wise (not sure location in SW VA) ? Thanks so much. bonnielaw629@gmail.com

A: Bonnie, Thank you so much for your interest. This program is insuring that young Appalachian musicians will carry on the traditional music of Appalachia long after us old guys are gone. I do not accept donations personally, but you can sponsor a child by paying the tuition for Mountain Music School. Go to www.mountainmusicschool.org or call Charlotte Green at 276) 523-7464. Ron
