Music of the Plains

Pioneers who settled the Plains traveled from far and wide, yet endured many similar joys and hardships. David’s goals with this program are twofold: 1) to demonstrate the various cultures represented by these courageous folks and 2) to share stories and sing songs that arose out of their common experience of early life here. Though music, audiences learn about homesteading, cowboys, children’s games and the wonders of the wide open prairie.
