General Announcements

Saint Meinrad will host Black History Lecture on Feb. 18

Greg C. Adams, an archivist at the Smithsonian’s Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, will deliver the annual Black History Lecture in St. Bede Theater at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology in St. Meinrad, at 7 p.m. CST on Feb. 18.

Adams will discuss “The Banjo and the American Experience: Looking Behind the Mask of ‘America’s Instrument.’ ” He will trace the development of what is known as the modern banjo from its African origins through American slavery to the present time.

Adams is an archivist, ethnomusicologist and musician who has been studying the banjo for nearly 20 years. He is a highly acclaimed banjoist of 19th-century “minstrel” era technique (or stroke style down-picking), an accomplished player of “classic banjo” from the turn of the 20th century, and was grand prize winner in the old-time three-finger category at the 2009 Charlie Poole Music Festival.

Currently a contractual processing archivist at the Smithsonian’s Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, he recently co-produced the album, “Classic Banjo from Smithsonian Folkways.” He also serves as an independent archival consultant for the Maryland State Arts Council’s Maryland Traditions Program.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available at St. Bede Hall and in the Guest House and student parking lots. For more information, call Mary Jeanne Schumacher at 812-357-6501.
