Folk singer weaves story with song at EHM event this weekend.
Throughout history, the stories of American immigrants have been told through music, and none more so than those of the Irish people. To celebrate the heritage of the Irish, Elmhurst Historical Museum presents “From Auld Sod to New Prairie: The Irish in America” at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 10.
This event for all ages features Lee Murdock, a folk singer who combines storytelling and music to interpret the lives of working people. Mr. Murdock will share the musical tales of Irish immigrants through traditional folk ballads, chanteys and work songs performed in an intimate setting.
The program will be presented in the Elmhurst Historical Museum’s Education Center, located just south of the Glos Mansion at 120 E. Park Ave. Admission is free (donations welcome), and limited on-site parking is available. All ages are welcome, and children must be accompanied by an adult.
