Vallillo uses Lincoln’s own words, stories, and period folk songs to illuminate the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. Vallillo states, “This program helps shed light on one of history’s most beloved figures, not only as a remarkable leader, but as a man.” This interactive and accessible program includes vintage instruments, including one Lincoln used to play himself. Lincoln knew and loved many of these very songs, and a special emphasis is placed on showing Lincoln‘s unique bond with the common man and his desire for reconciliation, not revenge. This program is an extensively researched, historically accurate portrayal, and utilizes Lincoln’s own stories to illustrate his life.
Abraham Lincoln in Song is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
