Music with Marshall Ballew program will be presented on Thursday, Aug. 14, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the Macon County Public Library in Franklin.

Ballew will take his audience on a musical journey through 20th century Americana, showing how gospel gave rise to ragtime, jazz, and blues while ballads, old-time, and bluegrass grew in the mountains from the British folk canon brought over by Scotch - Irish immigrants.

Using a variety of traditional instruments, Ballew will illustrate how all these forms developed, mixed, and hybridized into rockabilly, rhythm & blues, and rock and roll.
