Join us for, "An Evening with Stephen Wade," an American folk musician, writer and researcher. Wade's award-winning book, "The Beautiful Music All Around Us: Field Recordings and the American Experience" explores thirteen iconic folksong performances capture on Library of Congress field recordings between 1934 and 1942. In a compelling narrated, multimedia, musical performance, Wade threads the music with its largely unknown, yet, surprisingly influential creators.
