‘Mountain Minstrelsy’: Forgotten folk songs inspire Millheim’s Marah to record

Old mountain ballads, folk songs, waltzes and rafting chants, forgotten more than a century ago, have been resurrected by a group of musicians who have gone against the grain of the music business. On Feb. 15, Marah will debut the unconventional recording with an album-release show at the Elk Creek Cafe + Aleworks in Millheim. The album, titled “Mountain Minstrelsy,” is a labor of love for the band and will officially be released Feb. 25.
