Wilkes. Todd Hatton speaks with the musician, author, and filmmaker about how he got the BBC's attention.</p><p> Fri, 13 Jun 2014 17:46:50 +0000 Todd Hatton 41282 at http://wkms.org Tonight: BBC Films Paducah Square Dance For Doc J.D.

An accomplished musician, illustrator, filmmaker, and author, he's added another book to his C.V.; <em>Barn Dances and Jamborees Across Kentucky</em>. It traces the history, legacy, and the future of the Commonwealth's music as well as the social gatherings that birthed it.
