The Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City will host a special free performance by folk singer Chris Kennedy on Saturday, July 28 at 4:30 p.m. Kennedy will perform folk music classics with a railroad theme by known artists as well as his original music. Kennedy will perform a specific program about railroading that is primarily set during the Great Depression.
Chris uses old Jimmy Rodgers tunes made famous by artists like Arlo Guthrie and Merle Haggard, as well as other historical and Tin Pan Alley songs, to tell the story of railroading and how the railroads changed our nation. The program is a mixture of poetry, prose, songs and music.
Limited seating will be available, but visitors are encouraged to bring their own beach chairs. The performance will take place on the Nevada State Railroad Museum grounds between the Wabuska Depot and the access road.
This performance is sponsored by the Brewery arts Center, Carson City Arts and Culture Coalition and Carson City Department of Parks and Recreation.
