The Beautiful Music All Around Us
By Stephen Wade
Legendary musician and 2013 Grammy-nominee Stephen Wade, who has delighted audiences from the White House to Broadway, brings his near-lifetime exploration of Southern musical traditions to the Stackner. Best known for his long-running one-man show, Banjo Dancing, Stephen’s newest piece is based on his award-winning recent book that uncovers the largely hidden, but surprisingly influential, makers of iconic American folksong. Drawn from the celebrated Library of Congress field recordings of the 1930s and ‘40s, this exhilarating theatrical concert features spoken word, projected images, and live music-making. The Beautiful Music All Around Us is guaranteed to be a performance unlike any you have ever seen.
