Hindman is buried in the heart of Knott County, in Kentucky’s historic coal country. Not far from the famous Harlan County, USA, Hindman is a place whose struggling economic reputation is only surpassed by its deep and profound cultural contributions to American music. This is a place where distance is measured by ‘as the crow flies,’ where moonshine is still made deep in family hollers, and where you can still catch the old timers dancing flatfoot style to rollicking oldtime music at community center gatherings every week.
Hindman is a place wholly unique and deeply American with what has become an all too American problem.
