Program attendance is limited to 70, so please call and make seat reservations by calling the library at 535-8036, extension 3310.

In this upbeat presentation David performs folk music that existed at the time Nebraska became a state on March 1, 1867. Between tunes he discusses how these songs provide glimpses into history by telling stories of everyday life of the pioneers during the 13 years before Nebraska statehood. This cheerful show works particularly well for family audiences so we encourage homeschooling families to attend. Instruments featured are banjo, harmonica, whistles, and mountain dulcimer. This program is funded through the Humanities Nebraska Speakers Bureau program.
