2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
FRANKFORT PUBLIC LIBRARY DISTRICT
Meeting Room A/B
Rescheduled for May 6, 2018
Let's celebrate! In recognition of Illinois achieving statehood on December 3, 1818, Phil Passen presents an afternoon of music played on the hammered dulcimer. The music in the program reflects the story of Illinois, which is shaped not only by the land (prairie, Great Lakes, Mississippi River), but also by the many cultures which have thrived in it, beginning with Native Americans, and including French, German, African-American, Mexican, and other immigrant groups. The program includes songs about farmers; workers and labor struggles; and disasters and tragedies. And sausage. Maybe even a little Rock and Roll. An informative and entertaining look at Illinois, its history, and its people.
