Film Screening: Juke Joints and Honkytonk Legends
The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the SCETV film Juke Joints and Honkytonk Legends. Their “Gaillard Auditoriums” are large, non-descript rooms with wooden tables, metal chairs, and a bar. Their “Bi-Lo Center ushers and doormen” are friends and family who double as roadies. Yet, for the love of the music, the performers and fans leave their 9 to 5 jobs to venture down the back roads of small southern communities to remote watering holes for down home blues, country and western, and bluegrass entertainment. This film is an excursion into a larger than life culture with roots that trace back to traditional African and folk music. Free showing at Horry County Museum, June 23 at 1 p.m.
