Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Cheryl Cawood
Cheryl Cawood invites listeners on a journey to a bygone era, back to her homeplace. She tells the true tale of a mountain feud involving her great great grandfather on land that was indigenous to the Cherokee. The Cawood settlement of the 1700’s was later inhabited by the hundreds of migrant coal workers in the camps that sprang up in Harlan County, Kentucky when the big fossil fuel industry boomed. Cawood’s roots are as deep as a cast iron skillet is strong. Imagine Mama frying up a Sunday chicken supper while Pappy scratched out banjo tunes on the front porch. This rich and rustic history can be visualized, heard, and felt on her upcoming release “Bullet in the Cabin Wall”.
Cheryl has several projects that each revolve around unique themes. “Love, ~Pearl” is a peek into her S.E. Ky heritage, growing up in a river town, and stories of lost love.
“Hope Loves Harmony” is a project that focuses on hope and healing. It is a collection of music that supports parents and caregivers of those with substance abuse disorder.
