*********APRIL********* Civil War Songs
America's great heartache created some of the best tunes in our cultural songbook. Join Mark and his guitar to sing along with the songs of this era from the both the North and South:
Battle Hymn of the Republic, Dixie, Followin’ the Drinkin’ Gourd, Harper’s Ferry, Ashokan Farewell, Old Dan Tucker, Wade in the Water, Eatin’ Goober Peas, Alabama Gals (Buffalo Gals), The Battle Cry of Freedom, Amazing Grace, John Brown’s Body, The Bonnie Blue Flag, Johnny Comes Marchin’ Home
Mark entertains and informs with accompanying videos (including the song lyrics), historical storytelling, and audience participation. Your group will love the interaction, memories, and great music.
As a former local history teacher (eight years high school and six years middle school) and a Civil War buff, Mark especially enjoys presenting these songs to eighth graders during April (the beginning and ending month of the Civil War).
Mark performs at venues throughout Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer, and Amador counties. Email Mark at email@example.com with your contact information to schedule a memorable performance during April. Mark's initial performance is always free of charge.
