Moving Mountains with Music

Jeff Biggers

An extraordinary new album, “Still Moving
Mountains: The Journey Home
,” just released with one of the finest showcases of
musical talents from the Appalachian coalfields, has gone one step further:
Accompanied by a multimedia website—www.JourneyUpCoalRiver.org—the album
includes a map and search engine that allows listeners to see the setting of a
song or mining and environmental issue, scroll through photographs, videos, and
interviews, and learn ways to become involved in local coalfield citizens
groups.
