Join us on Wednesday, June 18th at 6pm at the library for Folk Singer, Storyteller, Musician and Music Historian, Mike Anderson brings the music of the American Civil War to life using Civil War era instruments of the men who fought the war. Stories of the formative years of the young man who became the 16th President will be artfully interwoven to create an educational, entertaining and memorable event.
While band instruments are most often seen with the music of the Civil War, multi-instrumentalist Mike Anderson will use the banjo, mountain dulcimer, jaw harp, bones, and other handmade instruments to bring the songs alive and lead the audience in the singing of the classics. Mike is a regular at the Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois. This is a great program that school age children and their families will love!
