In These Fields: A Folk Opera awed guests at our 2016 Southern Foodways Symposium. Friday, December 16, Lexington, Kentucky residents have the chance to see the performance live at ArtsPlace.
In These Fields explores the importance of food in our history and culture. Covering 175 years in the American South, this folk opera is a combination of monologues and songs that create a meditation on the people who have raised, prepared, and partaken of the food of the South.
