also features audio excerpts from interviews conducted by Greg
Sharrow of the Vermont Folklife Center and Evie herself. Let your

The show was organized by the Vermont Folklife Center and made
possible by a grant from the Samara Fund of the Vermont Community
Foundation and in collaboration with RU12? and Outright Vermont. It
will travel to all fourteen counties of Vermont - do not miss this
exciting show at Chaffee Downtown! The show will be on exhibit Jan.
