Kearney, Neb., Aug. 17, 2020 – The Archway in Kearney, Nebraska, will present musical performer Chris Sayre, in a program called American Folk Music on Sunday, August 23 at 2:30 in the Archway Event Room.
In this program, Chris Sayre explores the rich diversity of folk music that has been part of Nebraska’s heritage from the time it was a territory until the present day. Performing on concertina, dulcimer, guitar, mandolin, and musical saw, Sayre invites his audiences to enjoy the music of a variety of ethnic groups that have called Nebraska home.
“Our flexible seating will enable us to observe social distancing in the Archway’s event room for this performance,” says the Archway’s Event Coordinator Jill Epley. “So, seating will be limited. We encourage everyone to arrive early so that they can reserve their seats and we can adjust the seating arrangement as needed. We want everyone to feel safe and comfortable.”
Following Chris Sayre’s performance, root beer floats will be served. The performance is free. Donations for sodas are welcome.
Support for the Archway’s Soda Fountain Sundaes comes from Humanities Nebraska, First National Bank of Omaha and Jim and Kathleen McKenzie.
