97th Regimental String Band to perform this Friday
May 25, 2005 - The award-winning 97th Regimental String Band will make its annual appearance at Jefferson Barracks Park at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 27.
Tickets cost $10 for adults — $8 for those in period dress — and children under 12 are free. The concert will take place on the museum patio overlooking the Mississippi River. Those attending should bring lawn chairs. The 97th Regimental String Band tours across America performing the music of more than 100 years ago just as it would have been during the Civil War. The songs represent the stories of both the North and the South through the eyes of the everyday soldiers and their families.
