With the theme “Blues with Feeling,” visitors to the Folk Pottery Museum on Saturday will view pottery by White County potter Edwin Meaders featuring his famous blue roosters in rare multi-headed varieties. It will also showcase his earliest wood-fired work and numerous decorated functional pieces.

“We will continue the theme with a program of music throughout the day as Kurt Johnston performs traditional blues in the museum lobby,” Museum Director Chris Brooks.
