Patt Jarrett
At 30-years-old, Pat Jarrett leads perhaps everything but a boring life. He boasts “a fire-breathing seamstress” wife and is quite a skilled photographer too. Pat has been working as a professional for the past ten years, and now works as a Digital Media Specialist and Documentarian at the Virginia Folklife Program. Pat took his disposable camera with him to the 78th annual Galax Old Fiddlers Convention in Galax, Virginia—a town about two hours from Bristol (VA), which is considered to be the birthplace of all country music. The program is a convention where people compete in dance competitions and old-time or bluegrass music competitions. Pat captured his travels with Folklorist Jon Lohman to see Walter Messick and Christ Testerman at Messick’s Dulcimer Shop, as well as guitar maker Wayne Henderson. Pat’s work been recognized by the Virginia News Photographers Association, the Horizon Interactive Awards, and has been seen in Der Speigel, Time, the New York Times, and on NPR.org.
