Dust Bowl: American Stories—A One-Man Show by Grant Maloy Smith

Grant Maloy Smith

Join American Roots singer Grant Maloy Smith for a one-man show on the American Dust Bowl.

 

In the 1930s, farmers and their families were forced to flee their homes when winds blew massive black clouds of soil across the Great Plains. Hear stories and songs about this Depression-era tragedy set to video on a rustic stage.

 

Discover how dust storms affected millions of people, including native people. Learn about becoming a forced migrant, and explore the essence of being American.

 

Grant Maloy Smith’s album Dust Bowl: American Stories spent 17 weeks on the Billboard charts in 2017, including 11 weeks in the Americana/Folk Album top ten.

 

This event is free and open to all. Drop in for an exceptional evening.
