2009 – New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music
This exhibit explores the cultural process that has made America the birthplace of more music than any other place on earth. It’s the story of people in a New World, places they have left behind, and ideas they have brought with them. It is the story of people who were already here, but whose world is remade. Hosted by: Knight Museum and Sandhills Center, Alliance; Cambridge Museum; Platte County Historical Society Museum, Columbus; Trails & Rails Museum, Kearney; Cherry County Historical Society Museum, Valentine; Love’s Jazz & Arts Center, Omaha.
Sponsored in Nebraska by Cornhusker Press, a division of Dutton Lainson Company, the Berman Music Foundation, The Nebraska Rural Radio Network—KRVN, KTIC, and KNEB, Brown Transfer Company, and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
