Please join her at FCC for “I Lift My Lamp,” a program featuring “heart songs” and dance tunes brought to America by immigrants or composed out of their immigrant experience—Scottish, Irish, Polish, French, Yiddish, African-American, Cuban, Brazilian, and Argentine dances, songs, hymns and spirituals, Tin Pan Alley tunes, American anthems, and more. “I Lift My Lamp” celebrates the many multicultural contributions to American musical heritage and the vibrant spirit of community music-making still with us.
