One Reply to “Performer Showcase”

  1. I am an educator, historian, and folk musician. I teach history by way of musical intelligence. History comes alive when students hear songs from actual time periods of American History. They learn that our history has more than one point of view. The Missouri Arts Council has me on their roster. A list of my programs as well as my credentials can be found at
