Exploring the Sights, the Sounds and the Stories of Charlottesville in the Modern Rock Era
Opening Friday April 5th, the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society is proud to present this unprecedented new exhibit showcasing the musicians, the music, the bands, the venues and the many unforgettable moments from the “golden age” of the live music scene in Charlottesville, Virginia, from the 1960s to the 2000s.
This historic exhibit was curated by Rich Tarbell and Coy Barefoot, and was inspired by Rich’s 2018 book of collected oral histories and photography, Regarding Charlottesville Music. The exhibit is a project of the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society, and was made possible thanks to a generous donation by Hunter Smith and the Champion Brewing Company of Charlottesville. The exhibit will be on display in City Space on the Downtown Mall through April 2019, after which it will be on long-term display at a new location to be announced later.
The folks at PopMatters debuted the Chamomile & Whiskey video I shot with the band one evening in September. Simple concept, simple execution. One camera, one truck, a few dogs and a bunch of friends doing what they typically do most any given Saturday evening in Nelson County.
