The Roots of Black Music in America presented by Karlus Trapp

January 11th, 2022 · No Comments · City Library, Events, Main Branch, Teens

Join the Manchester City Library on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 at 5pm for a virtual, educational, and entertaining exploration of the origins of Black Music in America. Karlus Trapp’s presentation is a 100-year journey back through time to hear, experience anew, and learn about the music of America’s black musical giants. It is a joyful and informative program that comes alive through songs, stories, and history.

Veteran troubadour, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, music educator, and native New Yorker Karlus Trapp has been playing music since the age of five.  For the past thirty years he has been spreading joy through his music with solo and band performances throughout the Northeast, and now, “virtually” at libraries and schools across the country. His original music has been used for both network TV and international television markets. Karlus has been performing his “Roots of Black Music” show with Staten Island’s Universal Temple of the Arts Ensemble for over 10 years, entertaining and educating thousands of school children and adults alike with this wonderful production.
