Woodsongs with Derek Spencer

From the hills of eastern Kentucky, Beattyville-native and singer-songwriter, Derek Spencer found a passion for songs, like so many other Appalachian youths, in church - at his mother's side singing from the Sunday hymnal. Embodying the purest form of folk tradition, Spencer is ultimately a storyteller. His songs and stories are filled with the characters and conflicts so familiar to Appalachian culture such as faith, doubt, damnation and redemption - but never without the one element that makes art universal - humanity.

Songs of Freedom and Peace at the Montgomery County Public Library

Songs of Freedom, Songs of Peace focuses on the songs of the years of The Civil Rights Movement and Peace Movements with current day motivational songs written by the presenter.
These are songs that trace the development of humans and our consciousness, as we move closer and closer to a more diverse and peaceful co-existence.

"Marcus Wilkerson, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, mixes American roots music with the rhythms of Traditional African and Afro-Latin music and song. A talented vocalist, hand drummer and guitarist, Marcus weaves in and out of the genres that cross all cultures with his mixture of acoustic soul and what he calls bio-rhythmic expression, using percussion and his body as his instrument.

Deeply steeped in the classic song writing traditions of early Civil Rights Movement and The Peace Movement of the 60's and 70's, Marcus Wilkerson is a student, teacher and performer of all music that marks the development of human consciousness."

This will take place in the Montgomery County Public Library in the Community Room and refreshments will be provided.
