Stephen Foster was the guy who wrote ‘Oh Susannah’, ‘Hard times come again no more’ and numerous other songs we often considert as public domain. He was the first man to earn his living solely through his music. He died as a forgotten alcoholic at the age of 37.
With Juniper Tar as house band, The Foster Project features performances from Jon Langford (Mekons, Waco Brothers), Christopher Porterfield (Field Report), Robbie Fulks, Blueprint, Betty Strigens, and a community choir of 20 voices from Milwaukee’s various music scenes.
