Dale Farmer's film The Mountain Minor was not only written and director by an area filmmaker, but featured area musicians as well. Farmer's vision for the film included enlisting real musicians to play the characters instead of actors, to get the music exactly right. Niki Dakota of WYSO's Excursions spoke to one of these musicians, longtime area old-time music veteran Ma Crow, about her role in the film.

The soundtrack to Dale Farmer's film The Mountain Minor, featuring local area musicians Ma Crow, The Tillers, and Mike Oberst, international touring artist Elizabeth LaPrelle, and more, is WYSO's CD of the Month for November 2020. The film is screening on ThinkTV16 next month, more information is available at TheMountainMinorMovie.com.
