A Lecture in Song
Don’t Fence Me In: The Enduring Legend of the Cowboy and the Old West in Song

Sunday, March 4, 3:00 - 4:30pm
By Fred Miller, Singer/Pianist/Narrator

$15 member / $20 non-member / $5 student with valid ID
Includes Museum admission. Advance registration is required. 


Join us for another in the extensive series of Lectures-in-Song, drawn from the Great American Songbook, Broadway, Hollywood, Tin Pan Alley, and traditional American folksong. American popular songs have described, defined, and illuminated our history from the very beginning. “Don’t Fence Me In” is a panorama of the American pioneering spirit, the ongoing expression of her most essential value—freedom—in words and music.

Fred Miller’s Lectures-In-Song comprise a series of solo programs, each an historical, anecdotal, and musical profile of some great personality or important aspect of American popular song. These lectures are delivered by singer/pianist/narrator Miller at the piano, and each reflects his lifetime passion and appreciation for great music.
