Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Gala Concert
Posted on Riverside Blog February 01, 2009

This stirring work paints a portrait of the final train journey made by the slain President Lincoln, on his way to his final resting place. It is the story of the train wending its way through the byways of America, and features a chorus led by a balladeer, Michael Mark (I Love My Wife, Cotton Patch Gospel), a narrator played by acclaimed actress Ruby Dee (American Gangster, Steam) banjo soloist Eric Weissberg (Dueling Banjos, "Deliverance") and Richard Bourg (Hallowd Ground, Kolhass) as President Lincoln.

The four join gospel preacher Tyrone Aikens and his choir, a barn dance caller and fiddler to honor Lincolns message of a new nation conceived in liberty. David Amram (world music pioneer, virtuoso performer, composer "Splendor in The Grass" and "The Manchurian Candidate") is the Square Dance Caller

Tickets are $15/10, and are available at the door. Proceeds from this concert will benefit The Riverside Food Pantry.
