The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery, in conjunction with the exhibition Ola Belle Reed: I’ve Endured, on display through June 30, presents I’ve Endured, a concert honoring the music and legacy of nationally recognized bluegrass and old-time musician Ola Belle Campbell Reed (1916-2002). This performance brings together musicians and family members who worked with her, along with those who continue to carry on in the tradition of old-time music, including musicians Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, The Honey Dewdrops, Hugh Campbell, and Dave Reed, with Cliff Murphy, director of the Smithsonian’s Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.

With a voice born in the mountains and shaped by the hard times she lived and saw, Ola Belle Reed established herself as a significant and influential banjo picker, singer, and songwriter of old-time mountain music.
