The Smithsonian “Traveling Museum of Music” program will be featured as part of living history weekend at Fort Hartsuff State Historical Park near Elyria, Nebraska on Sunday, July 6 at 1 p.m.
The hour-long program was developed for the Smithsonian Institution based on stories, music and songs that were popular during wartime, beginning with the Revolutionary War. Music and songs from every United States war era will be featured.
Bob and Sheila Everhart, presenters during this program, are members of the National Traditional Country Music Association and have performed in Europe, China, on RFD-TV and PBS-TV’s “Old-Time Country Music” show. They have produced six Smithsonian Albums (including one Grammy nomination) and seven award-winning albums with Prairie Music Records.
The program is sponsored by the Friends of Fort Hartsuff and funded in part by a grant from the Wozab Foundation. This special program is free to attend. However, a valid park entry permit is required.
The Fort is located 3 miles north of Elyria, Nebraska on Fort Avenue, just off Highway 11; highway 11 runs between Ord and Burwell, Nebraska. For more information, please contact Fort Hartsuff State Historical Park at firstname.lastname@example.org or (308) 346-4715.
