Music to be explored

LARNED — To celebrate Kansas Day the staff of the Santa Fe Trail Center invites the public to a unique musical presentation at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. in the Center’s auditorium. 
Aaron Fowler of Wichita will entertain us as we start 2012 by commemorating 151 years of statehood.  The free program is open to the public. A reception with birthday cake will follow the concert.  Plan to attend and enjoy music and fellowship. 
Fowler will explore some of the music that was popular when the plains were getting settled in the 1800s.
Life on the Kansas Prairies in the mid-1800s, when Kansas was becoming a state, was very different than today.
What was here on the plains 200 years ago? How did folks get here? What was it like? And what did they sing!
All of these questions will be raised during this performance. Songs about the California Gold Rush, Underground Railroad, Trains, Cattle Drives, Stage Coach visitors and of course our State song are all part of this engaging and interactive performance.
Fowler began his music career as a teacher in Wichita. He is a member of the Kansas Arts on Tour roster with the Kansas Arts Commission, as well as a Wolf Trap Early Education Teaching Artist with Kansas Wolf Trap. He is a founding artist and Artist Coordinator with Arts Partners of Wichita.
The Santa Fe Trail Center is two miles west of Larned on K- 156.  Operating hours are Tuesday through Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed Mondays from Labor Day to Memorial Day.
