What is it like to be a musician from Kansas and what can their music tell us about time and place? Using music and storytelling, this presentation explores informal music traditions, styles, and musicians from Territorial Kansas up through the age of the radio, and concludes with a demonstration of various instruments and music from early 19th and 20th century Kansas. Presented by Derrick Doty.
