Mel with Janis Pruitt

Husband and wife Ronald and Jessie Cooper collaborate on making folk-art objects in the Appalachian Mountain tradition. After Ronald was disabled in a serious automobile accident, he began whittling animal figures, and Jessie, who had painted on and off for several years, decided to try her hand at sculpture as well. Biblical scenes dominate the work of both Coopers, who welcome us to their Fleming County home to begin this edition.

We also visit the Leeds Center for the Arts in downtown Winchester. This former movie theater now hosts a variety of arts performances, community programs, and social events. This tour spotlights preparations for The History of Winchester in Song and Story, a revue featuring local celebrities and citizens.

The musical guest for the week is Janis Pruitt, a Louisville-based singer/songwriter whose influences range from early rock to bluegrass. She and her band play selections from her first full-length album, Streets of Rome.
