Join us for Folksongs of the First World War on Thursday, April 25th, at 6:30 P.M. at the LaSalle Public Library.
In commemoration of Anzac Day, April 25th, join legendary folksinger, storyteller, and autoharp virtuoso, Adam Miller for a free, sing-along program of stories and songs from the First World War, known in its day as “the War to end all wars.”
Internationally, 70 million military personnel participated in the First World War. Many of the English-language songs of this war have become part of the oral tradition in the USA, Great Britain, and Australia. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand in honor of the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli during the First World War.
This program is made possible through funds from the Alwin C. Carus Trust. This is a free program, open to the public. The Library is located at 305 Marquette, LaSalle. For more information, please call the Library at 815-223-2341.
