The Greeks have their Odyssey. Finland has its Kalevala. And now the Great Plains of America has Songs From The Tall Grass, a new musical. Like a hooked rug from the past, Songs From The Tall Grass uses lyrics from the 1800s and original contemporary music to weave a tale of hope, hardship and the ties that bind families together. A theatrical experience that leaves audiences laughing, crying, and feeling empowered by the past and hopeful for the future, Songs From the Tall Grass is truly an epic poem of the prairie.
Songs From The Tall Grass is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius and Challenge America grants.
