The North Platte Public Library continues its Celebrate Nebraska 150 program series at noon Friday, March 24 with “Nebraska Territory Stories” by David Seay.The program combines music and history.
In this upbeat presentation, Seay performs folk music that existed at the time Nebraska became a state on March 1, 1867.
Between tunes, he discusses how these songs provide glimpses into history by telling stories of everyday life of the pioneers during the 13 years before Nebraska statehood. This cheerful show works particularly well for family audiences so we encourage homeschooling families to attend.
Instruments featured are banjo, harmonica, whistles, and mountain dulcimer. This program is brought to us through Humanities Nebraska program funding.
Seating is limited to 70 people, so please call the library at 308-535-8036, Ext. 3310 to reserve a seat for this free program.
