Of Home and Of Exile

When: Fri., May 29, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Songs of Home and of Exile" finds beauty in many places. Songs from Finland, Armenia, Hawaii, and 'The Oklahoma Hills' (Woody Guthrie) express love for one's place of origin. Music from Czech and Latvian composers reach for early memories of mother and childhood friends. A young man leaves the empty farmhouse for good, and an Irishman sets his sights on Canada, where 'ten dollars a week isn't very bad pay'. Georgian POWs reminisce of home, 'where they shot their first arrows'.
