Chris Vallillo plays new & period songs about the President
Abraham Lincoln in Song.
Tuesday, April 28
5:30 - 7 pm.
The life of Abraham Lincoln spanned a period of change, growth and struggle in our young nation, and the music of his era movingly characterizes these remarkable times. Award-winning folksinger Chris Vallillo uses Lincoln's own words and stories, contemporary folk music and period folk songs to shed light on one of history's most beloved figures -- not only as a remarkable leader, but as a man -- who knew and loved many of these very songs himself.
Abraham Lincoln in Song has been endorsed by the National Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission and the Commissions of Illinois, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. In March of 2008, the CD of music from the show reached #10 on Billboard's Bluegrass Album Charts.
