Saturday, August 18, 2:00 pm, Madden Auditorium

Known as the lifeblood of our land, the Midwestern Rivers, such as the Mississippi (Great Father of Waters), The Illinois, The Ohio and The Missouri were the original highways of the Midwest, utilized by all our ancestors. From the first people, the Native Americans, to our own use of these waterways today, the rivers are an incredible source of story and song and continue to be as important as ever in shaping the destiny of the central portion of America. Join Barry in tracing their history in story and song.
