7:45 – 8:45     Prof. Guibert and the 1913 Blue & Gray Reunion Band
This brass band of Civil War reenactors offers a stirring mix of patriotic melodies, waltzes, and, of course, Stephen Foster tunes. In 2013, drummer Jim Smith marched from Pittsburgh to Gettysburg in remembrance of Peter Guibert’s original 1913 march. They were such a hit last year, that we brought them back for this indoor setting.

A Pittsburgh-area folk band with a twist plays not only traditional fare, but also features original compositions. Their Appalachian influence combined with Irish folk music is a perfect mix for dancing or listening. At the start of their set, they’ll invite our audience to join in for a square dance featuring several Stephen Foster tunes.
