ABOUT JULIANA AND JORDAN
Juliana Stricklen is a senior at Tulane University majoring in Musical Cultures of the Gulf South, Communications and Theater Production and Design. Born in Nashville, raised mostly in the City of Pittsburgh and regularly visiting family in West Virginia sparked her interest in researching the many genres of Appalachian music today. She is also interested in how we understand the Rustbelt and the migration of people out of Appalachia, and has been inspired by the Affrilachian Poets who, according to their website, "have been writing together, defying the persistent stereotype of a racially homogenized rural region."Jordan Holton is a music major at Tulane University. She grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee surrounded by Appalachian music. She hopes this project will expand her knowledge of this music and provide a good resource for others interested in the topic.
