Americana: A New Voice for a New Nation - Depression, Escapism & The Dustbowl Blues

This is the sixth concert of a six- part music series, “Americana: A New Voice for a New Nation”, presented by the Yarmouth New Church Preservation Foundation (YNCPF) with three noted Cape Cod musicians producing the series:  Ellen Adamson, Joan Kirchner and Jo Brisbane. Concerts will take place at 5pm on Sunday afternoons from May through October 2019. Tickets are $20 per event, (or a special per concert savings of $90 for the entire 6 concert series), and will be available at the door and on Eventbrite.

Each musical performance will include educational and entertaining readings related to the history of that era.

Music lifts the spirits of a people ground down by poverty, promising a better tomorrow.  Songs of migrants and destitute families are presented in contrast to the musical fantasies of both Hollywood and Broadway.  The songs of Woody Guthrie, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and many others, stirred and soothed a troubled nation.

The Americana series is supported in part by a grant from the Mid Cape Cultural Council.
