About Mark Twain’s “River of Song:”
From the creators of The Rep’s hit production Back Home Again: On The Road With John Denver comes this exploration of the music and culture of America’s first superhighway, the Mississippi River.
From the iron red water in Minnesota to the deep, dark Southern Delta, the river carries the stories and songs of the people. Come take a ride on the Mississippi— guided by the voices of the men and women who lived and worked on the river, tied together with the observations and insights of the Mississippi’s most famous traveler, Mark Twain. Performed by three world-class musicians, including David Lutken (Woody Sez, John Denver), it’s a journey through America’s Heartland and features traditional songs like “Dance Boatmen Dance,” “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child,” and “Deep River Blues.”
“River of Song” opens at The Milwaukee Rep on Jan. 18.
On Jan. 10, 414 Live will have the cast of The Milwaukee Rep’s production of Mark Twain’s “River of Song” perform on stage. In addition, the cast invites musicians to bring their instruments for an old fashioned Hootenanny.
