In the “Nebraska through Song and Story” program on Sunday, September 23rd at 2:00 p.m., Dan Holtz celebrates and commemorates people, places, and events in Nebraska history through stories, historic folk songs and his own original musical compositions. Accompanying himself on guitar and harmonica, Dr. Holtz tells stories of the pioneers who crossed the overland trails, early-day settlers, Pony Express riders and Native Americans. He also covers more recent Nebraskans such as Evelyn Sharp, Nebraska’s pioneer aviatrix, and more recent events such as the great blizzard of 1949. A native Nebraskan and emeritus professor of English from Peru State College, Dan enjoys sharing insights about some of the many things which make Nebraska unique. This program is brought to us by the Friends of the Columbus Public Library and Nebraska Humanities.
