Visiting Scholars Series: Folk artist Shannon Murray investigates the ‘People’s Music’
Tue, Feb 19
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Tackling guitar playing, and songcraft like it’s a contact sport, Shannon Murray’s music is intensely political, and deeply personal. Come explore the “People’s Music” with this gifted artist.Together, we will examine the songs of the industrial workers of the world labor movement. Get ready for an engaging evening!
Murray brings history to life through highly interactive performances, sing-a-longs, storytelling and modern interpretations of traditional IWW songs. You will participate in the folk process directly, contemplating your own connection with these stories and songs.
