The Story of Music: Stories from Home

Award winning poet and essayist Gary Holthaus and internationally acclaimed musician Lauren Pelon team up to offer a unique new program called “The Story of Music, Stories from Home.” Pelon plays a variety of ancient and modern instruments ranging from lute, lyre, and concertina, to recorders, gemshorn, electric wind controller and pedalboard. Holthaus reads from his work and that of others. Both the music and the readings offer unique perceptions of the natural world, and celebrate our sense of place, community, and home.

“The Story of Music, Stories from Home” will take place on Friday, January 21, 2011, 7:00pm at South Sioux City Public Library. The program is funded in part by the Nebraska Humanities Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and sponsored by South Sioux City Public Library and Picaresque II. It is free and open to the public.
