!, Spook Handy Songs of the Great Depression and Today History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
When the Great Depression hit, a whole new genre of American folk music was born. Songs about the Dust Bowl, the Great Migration, bread lines and soup kitchens, the New Deal and times of triumph and struggle circulated throughout labor camps, churches and family gatherings. These songs depicted down-to-earth everyday realities of the American laborer and farmer, the hungry and the industrious, centuries old traditions and the transition to a new modern society. It can be surprising how many of these old songs speak of challenges we face today and how new songs written about today's America can so resemble the songs of the Great Depression. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

Walker, Nancy Nancy Walker trio Literature- Creative Writing,
Music,

The Nancy Walker trio Big Shoulders. The Zucchini Brothers. And that's just for starters. Nancy's voice has found a home with the trio, whether singing her own melodies, classics from the American songbook or selections from the deep catalog of the Old Town School of Folk Music. Have you lived until you've heard Nancy sing "Bury Me Beneath The Willow?" She's just an comfortable laying back and letting Larry and Sam stretch out on an original instrumental, with Larry's guitar snaking along Sam's expansive drum beat. Some bands get by on style, some get by on substance. Some, instead, catch the magic that flashes when the two poles meet. The Nancy Walker trio is the real thing.
