Eight master artisans flex their talents at the 11th annual Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Showcase. Chow down on comfort food classics like Brunswick stew and fried apple pies as you groove to the sounds of Flory Jagoda’s Sephardic Jewish ballads, Buddy Pendleton’s bluegrass fiddle, or Cheryl Maroney’s traditional gospel music. Quilters, beekeepers, chair makers, and more round out the offerings from the mentor-student creative teams with the purpose of carrying tradition forward.

Sunday 9/21. Free, 1pm. VFH Conference Center, 145 Ednam Dr. 924-2396.
