Over the past decade, audiences have shared with Apollo Chamber Players their ideas of what constitutes folk music. Composer-performer Pamela Z offers her take on folk music, with a new commission inspired by American 1960s/'70s folk rock.

Steven Snowden’s "Appalachian Polaroids" provides a juxtaposed look at the DNA of American and Appalachian roots music, a work inspired by photographs of remote Appalachian mountain communities. And Snowden's 'Take This Hammer' finds its origins on a bluesy prison work song that later inspired the music of British folk-rocker Sandy Denny.

In addition to the two evening performances of this program, they will offer a first-ever ApolloLab, an informal, behind-the-scenes look at the composer and new commission. Apollo presents this unique experience to you free on Saturday, March 16 at 2 pm.
