Linda & Henry – 25:00

(HEROES Short Block)

Director: Rebecca Branson Jones

“Linda and Henry” celebrates the love story of the Mabes, now in their 51st year of marriage and Henry’s 60th year of playing fiddle. Henry and Linda take a ride through the foothills of Stokes County on the border of Virginia and North Carolina pointing out old tobacco fields they once worked which now hold vacation homes with a view. Together they raised a family amidst a declining agrarian society working in factories during the week and traveling hundreds of miles on the weekends to attend fiddle contests. Self-taught, Henry has won nearly every fiddlers convention in Virginia and North Carolina making him a regional legend in the bluegrass community of the Southeast. Recorded over 10 years, Linda and Henry is a biographical documentary that showcases Henry’s brilliant talent and Linda’s steadfast support and discontent with “festival life.”
