Exhibit features mountain practices

East Tennessee State University’s Reece Museum is presenting “ Vanishing Appalachia,” a traveling exhibit from the East Tennessee Historical Society.

The exhibit is based on years of research among moonshiners, serpent-handlers, Mennonite farmers, cockfighters and others who still engage in traditional mountain practices.

It combines the photographs of Don Dudenbostel with the field recordings of Tom Jester.

Jester’s recordings accompany the photos and give the subjects a voice.

The exhibit runs through June 30.
