Back In The Saddle: The Songs of the Old Hollywood Westerns.
Concert Hall A -- 7:00pm to 8:00pm Saturday April 24 E
This concert and discussion explores the folk music that was a part of the original Hollywood Westerns. Many of the first Westerns used traditional folk music as part of the film’s score, while other songs composed specifically for a Western later became part of Americana, folk, and cowboy culture. This event will take a look at the music from The Forest Rangers, High Noon, True Grit, Red River Valley, and more. .
