 Best known for playing and teaching harmonica and ukulele, Milwaukee-born Lil’ Rev is a talented multi-instrumentalist equally at home with a flat-pick guitar, old-time banjo or blues mandolin. This ode to the American quilting tradition celebrates the untold number of quilters who let their stitches tell their stories. It features songs, stories, poetry and lore derived from personal interviews with elder quilters and historical documents. Themes in the show include: quilts’ ability to pass down family history, quilts of Gee’s Bend, quilts of the Civil War, quilts of the Old West and the AIDS quilt.
