Stephen Wade: Across the Amerikee

Stephen Wade: Across the Amerikee

Presented by Strathmore at AMP by Strathmore

In the first of two thematically linked concerts, Grammy nominee Stephen Wade marks the release of his latest Smithsonian Folkways album, Across the Amerikee: Showpieces from Coal Camp to Cattle Trail. Best known in Washington for his long-running stage show Banjo Dancing at Arena Stage, Wade has spent his life merging scholarship and the creative arts. This concert explores American grassroots traditions from lyric folksong to old-time instrumentals to comic recitations. Described as a “master of creating compelling narratives that entertain and inform” (Washington Post), Wade is joined by veteran instrumentalists Zan McLeod and Russ Hooper for a truly unforgettable and enriching concert experience.

Wade’s second concert is on Thu, Nov 16.
