There's Coal in that Guitar!! – A fun evening with Dr. Howard Rashba

Event Date: 
Saturday, November 23, 2013 - 8:00pm

Coal has and continues to play an important role in our way of life. When we turn on a light in the US today, there is a 1/3 chance the power was created by burning coal. The music sets this evening will include folk tunes that honor the hard, dangerous work of the coal miner. The coal mining area in Western Kentucky was also the birthplace for a style of guitar playing called thumb picking. Classics of this Muhlenberg Sound will be played during the second set. The sets will also include sing along folk tunes. Contributions to the Performer Jar will be given to Project Bread.
