Fabiani hosts ‘Country Music’ screening

August 30, 2019

About 40 people attended a free sneak preview screening of the upcoming TV event from PBS, "Country Music," in Fabiani Theatre.

PBS39 and Trine University hosted the event.

A film by Ken Burns, "Country Music" is an eight-part, 16-hour documentary series that explores the history of a uniquely American art form.

The documentary, written by Dayton Duncan, who also wrote the illustrated companion book, chronicles the highs and lows of country music’s early days, from southern Appalachia’s songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to the rollicking Western swing of Texas, California’s honky-tonks and Nashville’s “Grand Ole Opry.” The film follows the evolution of country music over the course of the 20th century as it eventually emerges to become “America’s music.”

PBS39, Fort Wayne, will air "Country Music" beginning Sunday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m. on channel 39.1.
