Music was the lifeblood of entertainment in the 19th century. When the work was done, musical instruments were brought out and a songfest began. Traveling musicians were highly celebrated and well-attended. You can enjoy the feel of those bygone days with popular 19th century music played by the Museum's own Oregon Trail Band.
As part of a special Living History program, the Oregon Trail Band will perform at 1:30 pm, preceding the day's Living History performance. The Oregon Trail Band is made up of musicians Bob Bohlman, Jerry Wilson, and Lon Ferguson.
