Event Description:
Enjoy an evening of music in the Historic Park Amphitheater. Concerts are free. Regular entry fees apply, or use your annual entrance permit.

June 16 - 7 pm: The Hot Jazz Preservation Society.
The concert is funded through a grant through the Indiana Arts Commission’s Arts in the Parks Program. Performers, who range in age from 10 to 50, are members of Dr. Julie Lyn Barber's musical family, who share their celebration of music they have sung with their families for generations. The children play a washtub bass, and Hoosier Hot Shot style washboard while the parents play a variety of instruments including guitar, piano, harmonica and ukulele.

The concert is a celebration of early 20th-century American music: listening to it, performing it, and encouraging the nostalgic memories it can carry from one generation to another. The adults in the band learned many of these songs from grandparents at the family piano or organ. Many of those songs were written before they were even born, so they had learned them from their own parents and grandparents. Audiences in the past have been surprised at how many of the songs were familiar to them from their own childhoods and will be encouraged to sing along, share their memories, and make new ones.
