This week on Inside Appalachia, we’ll hear the story of a world-renowned steelpan drum maker from Trinidad who built instruments in a former coal mining town in West Virginia, and inspired others to learn his craft.
We’ll also talk with a man who treks hundreds of miles to seek out long-lost varieties of heirloom apples.
“West Virginia, I call it my wild-goose-chase state because I’ve gone to so many places where people told me about apple trees used to be – they’re not there,” said Tom Brown, who calls himself an “apple detective.”
And we’ll visit a park in Kentucky where mythical giants attract visitors from far and wide.
