05/17/19 Larry Long Presents American Roots Revue with Tonia Hughes, Cory Wong, Petar Janjic, Billy Peterson, JD & Billy Steele Lanesboro Arts Lanesboro, Minnesota
Time: 7:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. Address: 103 Parkway Ave N. Venue phone: 507-467-2446. The American Roots Revue will bring together several of Minnesota’s most gifted performers and arts educators:  Larry Long (Smithsonian Folkways Recording artist who has made his life work the celebration of everyday heroes.), JD Steele (Mr. Steele and his dynamic vocal siblings, “The Steeles”, have garnered nearly every major music award and accolade that Minnesota has to offer), Billy Peterson (Bass player, songwriter, composer, session musician, producer, and oldest musical son of the renowned Peterson family), Tonia Hughes (Tonia’s vocal style is colored with melodic acrobats and elements of Gospel, Blues, Jazz, R&B, Rock and Worship), Cory Wong (Cory Wong may be young, but he has already proven himself to be a standout guitarist/musician in the Twin Cities), Billy Steele (piano, vocal, another member of the dynamic Steele family and producer of the Grammy Award wining Sounds of Blackness),and Petar Janjic (Drummer for Foreign Motion, fDeluxe, Chastity Brown). American Roots Revue will feature a cross-section of musical forms, which are rooted in the American experience including classic R&B, folk, jazz, African-American spirituals, and original works which honor the life-stories of Minnesota elders long established and newly arrived. For many in the audience it may be the first time they have seen music of one type or another.  For example, a rural person may have never before seen a black performer doing classic R&B.  Pehaps this is possible on television, but face to face with an abililty to relate to a quality artist is a very different experience. Each community involved, as described below, has its own special population and purpose for the Revue coming to its town.  In each, before the concert, Larry Long will use his songwriting curriculum to assist a group chosen by the community involved to gather narrative about their population or special minority and turn that narrative into a song.  That song is presented during the show with community members participating.  This is an art experience, but more a celebration of the special circumstance of that community and an educational device to develop empathy across the community from one group to another. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.

Larry Long will be presenting a workshop at the Okfuskee County Historical Society and Museum entitled ‘Bringing Woody Guthrie Home through Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song” Address: 407 W Broadway St, Under the Green Awning, Next Door to the Crystal Theater, Okemah, OK 74859-2401 Description: “I felt the warmth of my family all around me. Clara, Roy, Woody, George, Papa and Mama. They, too, all sat in this very theater many years ago. When the children came marching down the aisle and onto the stage, I swelled with pride and the tears came. I knew Woody was watching.” – Mary Jo Guthrie Edgmon On December 1, 1988 Okemah, Oklahoma held it’s first hometown tribute for Woody Guthrie. This event played before a full house at the Crystal Theatre featuring youth from Langston, Davenport and Okemah, who recited words and songs by Woody Guthrie and sang songs collectively written with Larry Long inspired by the elders of their communities. With the success of this song-writing process in Okemah, Larry developed a curriculum called Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song where one thousand elders have been brought into classrooms across the United States to share their life stories. Through this wonderful process, communities have been restored and bridges have been built between generations and diverse people. These oral histories and songs are as varied as our citizens: everything from a childhood in a Japanese internment camp, to fleeing war in Somalia, to farm winters in harsh northern Minnesota, to fighting in the Battle of the Bulge in World War II, to becoming an Anishinabe Ojibwe language instructor, to being the first grandchild of slaves to attend college. “When senior members of a community go into schools and talk about their lives and work, and children write songs with Larry Long about what they have learned, they create a remarkable celebration of humanity and hard work.” —DR. TONY SEEGER, Smithsonian Folkways In this workshop Larry will guide us in story, narrative, and song through this remarkable work in a multi-media presentation entitled: Bringing Woody Guthrie Home – Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song Presenter: Larry Long Smithsonian Folkways Recording Artist Executive Director of Community Celebration of Place www.communitycelebration.org www.larrylong.org
