History Happy Hour: Ann L. Wilson Presents Who Was Mother Goose? @ Old Courthouse Museum
Feb 21 @ 6:30 pm

Enjoy an evening discussing topics that relate to the history of Sioux Falls with beverages, snacks, and fun conversation with fellow history enthusiasts at History Happy Hour at the Pettigrew Museum! 

Mother Goose rhymes are a part of many young children’s introduction to literature.  They soothe, entertain and inspire imagination.  Yet, who was Mother Goose?  From where did she come?  How has her tradition spanned so many generations?  How do her rhymes pave the way for how a child learns to read?  What has Mother Goose known for years that reading experts may now better understand?  These questions will be explored in this entertaining  presentation.

History Happy Hour will be held in the Pettigrew Museum from 6:30 to 8 p.m.  Space is limited, $10 tickets are available at the Old Courthouse Museum. Call (605)367-7097 for information. 21 and over.

Bridget Boen
Acoustic Folk & Pop
http://www.bridgetboen.com/

 

While growing up in a small country town, located in the North Eastern part of Nebraska, country music always had a special place in her heart. As she became older, she had the chance to move around the Midwest; Bridget lived in Sioux City, IA, Denver, CO, and finally Sioux Falls. During her somewhat “nomadic” experiences, she encountered many different varieties of music and art. Through these experiences, she developed an original style of music resembling a mix between folk and pop. However, not limited to only folk and pop; Bridget also enjoys playing covers of some of her favorite artist ranging from the good old classics to new age pop. Acoustic music has always had a special place her heart- the passion is evident in her voice. The music is directly correlated to her experiences from traveling, love, and life.
