The Magic Carpet Made of Steel: Stories and Lies
Bill Rossiter’s performance includes storytelling and song that center on the history of the railroad in the West. A popular entertainer, Rossiter plays the guitar, banjo, and autoharp. Using tunes and yarns, he’ll explore the mystique and romance of the railway and what it meant to the people, the towns, and American history.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the performance is from 5:30-7 p.m. The museum will remain open until 8 p.m. so that guests can see the current exhibit of railway art, “Hear the Whistle Blow! Art of the Railway.” Content includes historical pieces of great significance, railroad artifacts, and works by contemporary, living artists related to Rossiter’s themes.
