In this upbeat presentation David 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. Instruments featured are banjo, harmonica, whistles, and mountain dulcimer.
