Songs of Temperance and Temptation

January 2014

with special guests, Maria Jette (narrator), Dan Chouinard (piano and accordion)

Prohibition leaps onto the musical stage in this delightful look at the history and humor behind Minnesota’s longstanding love/hate relationship with the saloon. Semi-staged and fully costumed, this performance features the songs and stories of Carrie Nation and 19th-century Temperance Union meetings, balanced by a full cup of good ol’ anti-Prohibition songs. Narration from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and projections of historical images complement the show as our performers prance to Victorian waltzes, croon 1920s jazz, launch into Irish reels, ragtime, and gospel, and belt out some of Irving Berlin’s best show-stoppers. Don’t miss this home-grown program that you can now take home with you: it’s a run of CD-release performances celebrating our newest recording!

This Rose Ensemble concert series and CD-release is produced in association with the Minnesota History Center for the exhibit, American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, on view November 9, 2013 - March 16, 2014.
