Historical Music Tour coming to a location near you!

Singer, songwriter Hank Cramer brings “Music Across the Palouse” to eleven library locations the last week of March.  With his booming bass voice, vintage flat top guitar, and a wry sense of humor, Hank’s shows are an experience you won’t want to miss. Hank’s programs are geared to all ages in partnership with Humanities Washington.

 In “Music Across the Palouse,” Hank is providing three different programs. “The Seven Tongues of Flame: Ireland’s Easter Rebellion of 1916,” shows the power of music and poetry to change government when violence fails. In “Through a Soldier’s Eyes: Wilson Cramer’s Civil War,” Hank portrays his great-grandfather, a Civil War veteran, as he shares  battle experiences, thoughts on the causes of the conflict, and the lessons learned in the war. “The Family Concert” is an acoustic blend of folk and country music popular with all ages that includes the historical events that shaped these genres.
A complete schedule can be found at the library’s Events Calendar at or by calling toll-free 877-733-3375.
