West Virginia Musician Finds Inspiration from Ruth Ann Musick’s Collection of Folktales

Tuesday, November 24, 2020

While the global pandemic has caused many setbacks for artists around the world, Annick Odom, a West Virginia musician living in the Netherlands, channeled her creative energy into an unlikely project. While quarantined, Odom worked with fellow musician and housemate, Federico Forla, an Italian oboist residing in the Netherlands, on a new piece inspired by one of the few books on her bookshelf at the time — A Collection of West Virginia Ghost Stories.
