Rhythm of the Region: "Music of the Germanic Lands"

May 26, 2018 | 2:00PM

What can singing and dancing traditions tell us about our history?  Each region of our country continues to be influenced by the oral and musical traditions of native peoples and those who first immigrated from other countries.  Participate in Elkhorn Valley Museum’s interactive series featuring speaker-musicians to find out how music and movement tell stories, create identity, and connect people through a common language.

Musician-storyteller David Marsh will sing folk songs and demonstrate the history of traditional German music on various instruments, including the accordion, autoharp (chorded zither), hammered dulcimer and others!  This is a free event!
