Family Discovery Series: The Arvada Center’s “Songs and Tales from the Colorado Trails”
posted by: admin
Dressed in typical 1860s attire, “Susannah and Jackson” tell stories of crossing the plains, interspersed with some of the best loved pioneer songs accompanied by guitar, banjo, fiddle, dulcimer, mandolin, harmonica, and autoharp. Hear about early Colorado pioneer women: Clara Brown, Chipeta Silverheels, Rattlesnake Kate, and Matilda Godfrey. Tales include Native Americans, miners, cowboys, and ranchers. Look forward to lots of audience participation and an appearance by the Lumberjack family.
