Stephen Wade

The Sky’s the Limit: Tall Tales and Traditional Tunes

In this final appearance of his popular fall series at AMP, Stephen Wade explores American story and song from the old frontier to the present day. Best known locally for his decade-long run of Banjo Dancing at Arena Stage, Wade’s performances merge scholarship with virtuosity. For this concert, multi-instrumentalist Zan McLeod joins Wade in a special new show that speaks with humor and poignancy to our nation’s character.

Additionally, the evening includes a screening of the new trailer for a feature-length film based on Stephen Wade’s book, The Beautiful Music All Around Us, now in development by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Paul Wagner.
