Description
STRING CITY: NASHVILLE’S TRADITION OF MUSIC AND PUPPETRY


The show is a musical chronicle of the history of Country Music as it relates specifically to Nashville’s becoming known world-wide as Music City USA and the home of Country Music. Starting with the early days of bluegrass and gospel recording, continuing with the birth of the Grand Ole Opry, we meet the great icons of Country Music as we travel through time with classic recordings that lead us to present-day while creating a fascinating and entertaining “circle” as we go.



As the music evolves, so does the technology as represented by the ever-changing set that incorporates marionettes, rod puppetry, and shadow/animation puppetry. This is dramatically demonstrated with a powerful music-driven soundtrack and very little dialogue – the audience member will meet the legends of Country Music in an unforgettable and indelible way as only puppetry can provide. The images combined with the music promise to be an unforgettable event as we combine two distinctly Nashville traditions: Country Music and puppetry from the Nashville Public Library.
