Final Intersections Sing Together of the 2014/2015 Season at Diana Wortham Theatre

April 17, 6:30 PM in The Forum at Diana Wortham Theatre, 2 S Pack Square in downtown Asheville NC: Carl Sandburg's American Songbag. Pulitzer Prize winner, renowned poet, and national icon Carl Sandburg was also a collector of American folk music, which he published in his widely popular anthology, The American Songbag, in 1927.

Sandburg said "The American Songbag comes from the hearts and voices of thousands of men and women. They made new songs, they changed old songs, they carried songs from place to place, they resurrected and kept alive dying and forgotten songs." Sing Together" celebrates the joy of music and singing in these spirited sessions with musicians Beth and Jim Magill.

All skill levels are welcome; no experience required.
