Historically Based Songs of Early Idaho

When: Tue., Nov. 15, 6:30-8:30 p.m. 2016

Using songs written by everyday folks before the advent of radio in 1923 and accompanying himself on guitar and banjo, Gary Eller will illustrate the historical development of Idaho from the time non-native Americans first appeared until mass communication strongly blurred regional musical distinctions. He will discuss the historical underpinnings of the songs and how old songs are collected in the digital age. Students will be encouraged to participate by joining in on refrains displayed by an accompanying PowerPoint show and by engaging in discussion.
