"The Beautiful Music All Around Us" An Evening with Stephen Wade, American folk musician and scholar
Wednesday, February 12, 2014, 7:30pm Hamilton Hall (2344 E. Iliff Ave., Lamont School of Music, University of Denver)
We will meet at 7:15pm at the table to the right of the box office when facing it.
For one night only 2013 Grammy nominee Stephen Wade will explore through live music-making, projected images, and spoken narrative the stories behind The Beautiful Music All Around Us: Field Recordings and the American Experience. Wade's award-winning book explores thirteen iconic folksong performances captured on Library of Congress field recordings between 1934 and 1942. In this compellingly narrated, multimedia, musical performance, Wade threads the music with its largely unknown yet surprisingly influential creators. A book signing and reception follows the performance. (Books will be available for purchase.)
