The program’s creator, Gib Young, provided this information about Musical Heritage of Indiana:
“With the possible exception of New York City it is not unlikely that Indiana has had more songs written about it or part of it than any other locale in the nation. Usually out-of-staters think of us as sort of bland and background noise. But they would be wrong. The Hoosier state has a long history of providing music for the rest of the nation – and the world.
Gib Young and Kevin Bledsoe of Huntington, Indiana have put together a power point that educates and entertains the audience as they travel down a path filled with music by Indiana composers and performers. It features songs about Indiana and it is filled with classic songs are familiar and beautiful. The music kind of compels you to sing along as it sets your toes tapping.
Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael are two the best composers ever. Crystal Gayle and Bill Gaither are represented here also. And so are many others. You will be entertained and find yourself saying, “I didn’t know that” and “I had forgotten how pretty that song is!’” If you want to spend about fifty minutes just feeling good about being a Hoosier and remembering some of the best music ever written, then join us on Tuesday, January 26that 7:00 pm. In times like these there is nothing wrong with feeling good!”
