Songs of America between the Wars with Rick Spencer
The years between the First and Second World Wars were among the most socially and culturally dynamic times that America had ever seen. Popular music in America was influenced by Tin Pan Alley, vaudeville, swing, country, folk, jazz, blues and early big band music. These styles were blending at a time when radio was making this diversity of sounds accessible to a huge number of people. This dynamic concert will feature a variety of entertaining songs popular between 1918 and 1941, along with historical connections to the period. Singer and composer Rick Spencer is known internationally for his performances of music in the American folk tradition.
