In conjunction with the Georgia Trust‘s “Places in Peril” program, which “seeks to identify, preserve and raise awareness to historic sites threatened by demolition, neglect, lack of maintenance, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy,” local songwriter T. Hardy Morris and filmmaker/photographer/sometime Flagpole contributor Jason Thrasher are traveling to historic sites around the state of Georgia threatened by neglect and/or demolition.
At each of those sites, Morris is filming a live performance of a track from his upcoming record, the hotly anticipated Audition Tapes. Below, watch Morris, along with frequent collaborators Thayer Sarrano and Matt Stoessel, play “Lucky” at Traveler’s Rest, a historic Toccoa inn where “limited use and decreased tourism has resulted in decreased revenue and deferred maintenance.”
