SoLost delves into the unique vibe of Mountain View, Arkansas, a place that dubs itself as the folk music capital of the world. Besides being home to a legendary yearly music festival that celebrates folk, bluegrass, country and mountain music, what truly distinguishes Mountain View is the fact that people literally break into song on any street corner, home or porch at any time on any day of the year. And they'll come long distances out of the Ozark hills or even across state borders to do it. Professionals, amateurs, seniors, and teenagers alike all converge on the town square every night of the week to sit in musical circles and play standards and originals from every genre. SoLost went to check it out.

Produced & Directed by Dave Anderson Photography, Editing and postproduction by Jonathan Childs, Motion Graphics by TJ McCoy. Executive Producer Warwick Sabin for the Oxford American. More coming to oxfordamerican.org.
