Durham, NC – Durham County Library presents The Old-Time Herald: A Reminiscence With Alice Gerrard, Gail Gillespie, and Sarah Bryan on Tuesday, September 12 at 7 p.m. at Stanford L. Warren Branch Library, 1201 Fayetteville St., Durham, NC 27707. This program is free and open to the public.

This informal talk and show-and-tell with the current and past editors of The Old-Time Herald magazine. Today the Durham-based publication has a loyal following of subscribers, national and international distribution, and is truly the “journal of record” for old-time music. Traditional music legend Alice Gerrard founded the magazine in the summer of 1987 and served as its editor through 2003. When Alice retired from the magazine to resume her active musical career, Gail Gillespie took over as editor, serving for the next five years, retiring in 2008. The current editor is fiddler and folklorist Sarah Bryan, under whose energetic and capable stewardship the little magazine has continued to flourish. Come enjoy lively stories, a multi-media hands-on presentation, as well as a mini-concert of old-time string band music.
