Dust Bowl Ramblers present songs of Great Depression at CAC


Sat, Sep 9th 2017 07:00 am
The Carnegie Art Center will host a musical performance by the Dust Bowl Ramblers from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23. The Dust Bowl Ramblers will present music from the Dust Bowl and Great Depression accompanied by a presentation of archival photographs projected onto a screen.
The Dustbowl Ramblers have chosen songs, written and sung during the Depression years, to highlight how Americans never lost faith in themselves, and express how a whole new perception of government evolved. These songs are tragic and hopeful, humorous and serious. Coupled with moving and compelling archival photographs from this period, attendees are in for a unique experience.
The Carnegie Art Center is situated in a structure built in 1904 as the City of North Tonawanda's public library and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since 1976, it has been operating as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation offering the community art exhibitions, art and dance classes, as well as support to artists and art organizations.
The CAC is located at 240 Goundry St. It's open from 6-9 p.m. Thursday and noon to 3 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 716-694-4400 or visit www.carnegieartcenter.org.
