Fort Caspar Hosts Free Music Performance
Fort Caspar Museum will host a free music performance by Bill Rossiter at 6:30pm on Thursday, May 22, 2014. "Stories, Songs and Sodbusters" features homesteaders' songs of hope-then disappointment-as they traveled through the "Great American Dessert."
This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibit "Journey Stories," a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition that will be on view at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center from May 24 to July 20, 2014.
Mr. Rossiter holds a master's degree in English Literature from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Currently, he lives in Kalispell, Montana, where he formerly taught literature, humanities, and folklore at Flathead Valley Community College. Rossiter will accompany the songs with guitar, banjo, autoharp and harmonica, and he encourages audience members to share personal or family stories about life on the range.
"Stories, Songs and Sodbusters" is presented by the Wyoming Humanities Council as part of its Humanities Forum. The Wyoming Humanities Council provides public humanities-based programs in partnership with local organizations and is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Fort Caspar Museum's hours in May are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily. Admission prices are $3 for adults; $2 for youth (ages 13-18 years); FREE for children (12 years and younger) and for FCMA members.
