3PM: Music of 19th Century America

One of America's most beloved song writers Stephen Collins Foster (1826-64) will be returning to Cincinnati where he started on his musical career in 1846, courtesy of the Cincinnati History Museum.  Mr. Foster composed more than 200 ballads— including such favorites as “Oh, Susannah,” “Camptown Races,” and “My Old Kentucky Home”— before his untimely death in New York City in 1864. Thanks to the History Museum, Mr. Foster will be able to share some of his music and his life story. He will accompany himself, and render some of his music entirely in instrumental form, on English concertina and accordion. Although he has stated that he did not, in fact, play either of these instruments during his lifetime so that he should not be regarded as a professional performer.

Friday, May 31
