The Telly Awards has named Pennsylvania Humanities Council as a Bronze winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for Steeltowns, Coalfields and the Unbroken Circle.
Steeltowns, Coalfields and the Unbroken Circle delivers unique musical stories of life in American towns over the last century. With guitar, banjo and harmonica, folk musician Tom Breiding captivates audiences while they learn about the history behind West Virginia’s coal industry and about generations of industrial workers from Pittsburgh. This episode was taped at the Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area’s Pump House in the Pittsburgh area.
“Humanities on the Road is inspired by what the Pennsylvania Humanities Council does everyday in communities across Pennsylvania,” said Interim Director Laurie Zierer. “This is an honor for PHC and recognizes talent, like Tom Breiding, that we have right here in our own state.”
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Pennsylvania Humanities Council’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
