Country and Bluegrass
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
The six-week America’s Music program is a film and discussion series that looks at popular music from blues to bluegrass, Broadway to rock ‘n’ roll. Each event features films followed by a discussion (and frequently performances) led by UMKC musicologist Andrew Granade.
The Country and Bluegrass program features the documentary High Lonesome: The Story of Bluegrass Music (1994) and live performances by pickers Jack Burlison and Jim McGreevy, members of Kansas City's award-winning Bluegrass Brigade.
Presented by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Tribeca Film Institute, and the American Library Association.
