Handy, Spook Tales from the Road History,
Life Skills- Other,
Music
Spook’s been to every American state except Hawaii, Michigan. And he’s met all kinds of people with all kinds of backgrounds – learning the history, values and culture of different groups of people. In this heartwarming, inspiring and sometime humorous concert Spook will share stories and songs he learned directly from Pete Seeger or indirectly from Woody Guthrie or his own songs about the places he’s been, people he’s met and the predicaments he’s found himself in. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Visit www.spookhandy.com for more info on the artist and other programs and workshops.
