The life of Abraham Lincoln spanned a period of change, growth, and struggle in our young nation, and the music of his era movingly characterizes these times. Abraham Lincoln in Song helps shed light on one of history’s most beloved figures, a remarkable leader who had a unique bond with the common man and a desire for reconciliation, not revenge. In this extensively-researched program, musician and storyteller Chris Vallillo uses period music that Lincoln may have known and sung, combined with Lincoln’s own words and stories, to illustrate his life and put it into context.
