Humanities of Nebraska Presents "David Seay"

Independent Scholar & Musician 

In this upbeat presentation David performs folk music that existed at the time Nebraska became a state on March 1, 1867. Between tunes he discusses how these songs provide glimpses into history by telling stories of everyday life of the pioneers during the 13 years before Nebraska statehood.  This cheerful show works particularly well for family audiences as it has opportunities for volunteers to come up front and participate and even learn how to play the harmonica!

Instruments featured are banjo, harmonica, whistles, and mountain dulcimer.
