Sedona AZ (February 1, 2013) – The Sedona Heritage Museum is hosting a 2013 Living History speaker series program on Wednesday, February 13, at 10:00 a..m. The one hour program, Songs for the Soul as the Highway Rolls, will feature Cornville, Arizona, singer-songwriter Dan Engler. Engler will perform his original folk music, and talk to the audience about folk music origins and characteristics.
The definition of folk music has always been an elusive target. Some say its origins are in the blues, others claim it has gospel roots, and some equate it with country. Englar says that now folk music is often labeled by marketers as “Americana” and “Roots” music.
Dan Engler pens his own original story-telling songs that reflect his life experiences over the past forty years in Arizona. “My music is simply stated and simply played,” said Engler. “They are more stories than songs and the hope is they are shared in a way through which the listener can see some aspect of their own life.”
This is a free event, open to the public, with refreshments.
Every year, the Sedona Heritage Museum presents the Living History series. Its speakers have included descendants of pioneers, long-time residents with histories to share, or the storytellers of southwestern cowboys and Arizona folklore. The Sedona Heritage Museum is located at 735 Jordan Road, in Jordan Historical Park, uptown Sedona, and is open daily 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
