Dale Evans and Hannah Kerrigan will join us to perform songs from the World War I era.

The music of the Great War reflected America's progress from strict neutrality and even opposition to the conflict, to all out support of the Allied cause. Sometimes bitter reflection followed the Armistice.

This program will consist of a display of WWI sheet music, 78rpm recordings played on a vintage Victorola, and Dale & Hannah's interpretation of several popular songs about the war. There will also be an audience sing-along of a few well known songs from the period.

This event is part of our World War I remembrance that runs from September 2017 to December 2018. Sponsored by the NPL Foundation.
