The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities hosts the seventh annual Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Showcase at their office beside the Boar's Head Inn. Come see Richmond's legendary gospel singers Maggie Ingram and the Ingramettes, the Northern Neck Chantey Singers, the Whitetop Mountain Band, and other masters of Virginia's traditional folk crafts and foodways, including real Brunswick Stew. Come be dazzled by a wide range of traditional music styles and witness an oyster shucking contest with world champion Deborah Pratt. Behold mighty draft horses up close, sample maple syrup from Highland County, sip hard cider from southern Albemarle, and much more. 924-3296.
