BOONE — At first glance, David P. Haney seems like the typical English professor.

He has 20 years of teaching experience and an interest in British Romanticism. Haney chairs Appalachian State University’s Department of English. He also is a bluegrass musician.

Haney, along with his wife Lisa Baldwin and members of his Alabama-based band Dirt Road, will perform in Appalachian’s Winter Folk Festival on Jan. 31.
