Listen

(Duration: 59:19)

Carl Sandburg was not only a great poet, he also created an important work of ethnomusicology, The American Songbag. On the Monday edition of "Live and Local," I'll talk with participants in a program called "Prayers for the People: Carl Sandburg's Poetry & Songs" at the University of Illinois Monday night. And we'll hear a preview of the Red Note New Music Festival at Illinois State University.
