Killion, Paul Senior Moments Music
One singer and his guitar, bringing countless Musical Memories, one song at a time! 'Senior Moments' is a performance of favorite standards from the 20s through the 40s. These classics are sung by Paul (the Acoustic Warrior) and accompanied by his acoustic guitar. From 'Bye Bye Blackbird' to 'Sunny Side of the Street', the program is as up-beat as it is memorable. It's a rare audience that does not sing or hum along with Paul during his performance. For over a decade, Paul has brought this program to hundreds of very appreciative audiences with the most common responses being 'Wonderful job!' and 'When are you coming back?'

String Band, Homegrown Roots of the Dead Music
Jerry Garcia, founder and “spiritual advisor” of the psychedelic rock band the Grateful Dead, was an avid listener and student of American traditional music. He and his bandmates were well versed in 20th century American blues and bluegrass, as well as the folk traditions of the British Isles. Like the Grateful Dead, the Homegrown String Band has drunk deeply from the well of blues, ballads, and breakdowns that have helped to shape the sounds of American popular music. In this program we will be sharing our original interpretations of some of the traditional and early commercial recordings that were featured in the repertoire of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead.

Schuman, Sandy Lead Belly: Singer, Songwriter, Murderer; King of the 12-String Guitar History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Huddie William Ledbetter, better known as Lead Belly, got a bum deal. Was he justly sentenced to prison for murder? Twice? Was he exploited by the man who discovered him? Did he have to share credit for writing the song that became the number one hit of 1950! This program includes a series of true stories about Lead Belly’s life: why he chose to play the 12-string guitar, the events that led to his two convictions for murder, how his reputation as a prison songster led to his pardon by the governor, how he was discovered by John and Alan Lomax, how he contributed to the folk music revival and the advent of rock and roll, how his signature song—the song he used to both open and close his performances—became the most popular song of 1950, and why it is still sung today at soccer games all across Europe. These stories are interspersed with songs such as The Midnight Special, Easy Rider, John Hardy, We’re in the Same Boat Brother, and Goodnight Irene.
