The Spider John Legacy
To think about the West Bank folk music scene is to think of Spider John Koerner. For 50 years, Koerner has explored the ranges of traditional American song. He enrolled in 1956 at the University of Minnesota as an engineering student, but in early 1958, he became a student of the burgeoning folk scene. With a borrowed guitar and a Burl Ives song book, he began a journey which helped shape the course of American country blues and folk music, with a music career taking him to stages throughout North America and Europe. Join us at The Cedar Cultural Center on April 9th as we celebrate his music and enduring legacy, from the West Bank to the world.
