Add this Event to Calendar 11/19/2020 02:00 PM 11/19/2020 03:00 PM Virtual Lecture: Indigenous Music in the 21st Century

Join us in celebrating National Native American month with this educational lecture. American Indian performers and the struggles of their people have influenced most, if not all, forms of contemporary music. Most people just don’t realize it. Elvis Presley, for instance, had maternal relatives who were Cherokee Indian. So did legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Country singer Hank Williams had Muskogee Creek and Cherokee ancestry. Craig Harris, a musician, radio host, and author of Heartbeat, Warble, and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music enlightened a crowd of a few dozen people Thursday afternoon at the Palm Beach Gardens branch of the Palm Beach County Library. Harris played congas as people entered. After speaking, and showing a video montage of Indigenous musicians, he distributed percussion instruments to the audience and led them in recreating beats.
