Handy, Spook Songs of the Great Depression and Today History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
When the Great Depression hit, a whole new genre of American folk music was born. Songs about the Dust Bowl, the Great Migration, bread lines and soup kitchens, the New Deal and times of triumph and struggle circulated throughout labor camps, churches and family gatherings. These songs depicted down-to-earth everyday realities of the American laborer and farmer, the hungry and the industrious, centuries old traditions and the transition to a new modern society. It can be surprising how many of these old songs speak of challenges we face today and how new songs written about today's America can so resemble the songs of the Great Depression. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

McEntee, Robert Magic Beyond Imagination! Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Magic Beyond Imagination! Is a wonderful family show which adults enjoy as much as children. It combines amazing magic, lots of audience participation, age appropriate humor, storytelling with reading promotion, a magical game and typically a breathtaking musical routine with mesmerizing special effects! For slightly larger budgets, the magician can add spectacular illusion(s), such as, floating a child in the air, sawing somebody in half or making them magically appear to introduce the show. Children also go crazy for an incredible animated talking picture! As you know, today’s audiences require lots of imagination stimuli to keep their attention for a length of time. An effective way to do that is to use lots of props, music, participation, comedy, storytelling, AND great magic. Blending all of these elements into a single program requires lots of set up time... Lots of magicians ignore this! They walk in and start with a few juvenile props! To ensure this show captivates the attention of children AND adults, it takes as long to set up & then take down, as it does to perform. Therefore, you get the highest quality family show at a tremendous value, to build your program's reputation!
