'Barnwood Builders' films episode in Wise

‘Barnwood Builders,’ a documentary television series on the Magnolia Network, featured Wise, Virginia, in its most recent episode. In the show, Mark Bowe and his crew of West Virginia master craftsmen salvage antique barns and cabins, reusing the wood to create stunning, modern homes.

These photos were taken by Tim Cox on the final day of the four-day shoot in March.

Michael "Badhair" Williams – Steve and the Snake

Michael "Badhair" Williams is from the North Carolina Mountains, the heart of Appalachia. He has been telling Appalachian folk tales on stage since 1975. Television, radio, and rock videos have pushed storytelling into the corners with the cobwebs. "Badhair" sweeps it back out, pulling from his Appalachian heritage the tales that delighted our grandparents, and now delight our children and ourselves. Michael "Badhair" Williams has been telling stories in schools and at festivals across the country for over three decades. He has delighted audiences from rural Appalachia to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., and across the nation in school libraries and auditoriums. Michael "Badhair" says about storytelling, "My goals are, first, to educate students, to give them an idea of what Appalachian culture is. I try to dispel the stereotype of the 'Beverly Hillbillies' and 'Green Acres.' I hope that through exposure to my stories they may also discover their own cultural heritage in the folk tale section of their library or in classroom follow-up. My second goal is to entertain the students. This facilitates learning. I believe these have been the goals of storytellers throughout history."
