Event Details

Jane Voss and Hoyle Osborne in “All In, Down and Out:  The Great Depression In Song and Story”

           

            The Great Depression inspired an amazing body of American popular and folk music.  Woody Guthrie, Langston Hughes, Irving Berlin, Blind Alfred Reed, the Carter Family, E. Y. Harburg, Bessie Smith and many others gave us insights on many different aspects of the Depression.  Their songs are interwoven with readings from outstanding writers and wits of the day, as well as from ordinary working people. 

            Jane Voss and Hoyle Osborne perform this historic American folk and popular music with verve and authenticity, accompanied by piano and guitar.
