The Rapid City Public Libraries are excited to present a special Lunch and Learn program on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 from noon -- 1 p.m. Musicians Hank Harris and Jami Lynn will perform original, acoustic, and bluegrass music.
Singer, songwriter and musical archivist Hank Harris of the Black Hills presents a lively picture of historic Deadwood, South Dakota, through the diverse music from 1875 to 1910 in his album Deadwood Songbook 1 & 2. Harris' performance features music from minstrel shows to church hymns, vaudeville to ethnic folk music, piano parlor airs to cowboy songs and more. All were heard from street corners, opera houses, campfires, brothels and saloons. Harris will explore the characters, history and legends of South Dakota's notorious mining town through song and story.
South Dakota native Jami Lynn performs folk, acoustic, and bluegrass music. She is a member of the group Jami Lynn & the Aquila Band. Her latest album, "Sodbusters" is a collaboration piece with duo partner, Josh Rieck. It's made up of 6 folk originals and 5 traditional folk songs, most of which are linked to South Dakota.
