'Hymns for the Holler' raises money for eastern Kentucky cultural center

"Hymns For The Holler" featured artists like Ben Sollee, Daniel Martin Moore and Joan Shelley.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — People held a concert to help raise money for an eastern Kentucky cultural center that suffered during the devastating flood Friday.

"Hymns For The Holler" featured artists like Ben Sollee, Daniel Martin Moore, and Joan Shelley.

The proceeds helped benefit the Appalshop Studios in Whitesburg.

Appalshop Communications Director Meredith Scalos said they are facing years of recovery.

“Over 21 feet of water actually submerged Whitesburg and our archive, our theater, our radio station, were under six and a half feet of water,” she said. “So we're well into the recovery phase at this point. But it is going to be costly and a very long road."

Anyone willing to donate money to the Appalshop can do so here.
