J.D. Wilkes on 'Barn Dances & Jamborees Across Kentucky'
Colonel J.D. Wilkes hasn't met a medium yet that he hasn't matched. An accomplished musician, illustrator, filmmaker, and author, he's added another book to his C.V.; Barn Dances and Jamborees Across Kentucky. It traces the history, legacy, and the future of the Commonwealth's music as well as the social gatherings that birthed it. Wilkes sat down with Todd Hatton to talk about what prompted him to write the book and what it taught him.
