Spencer & Rains: Folk Art & Old Time Music

Virtual talk and performance

Tricia Spencer and Howard Rains will discuss growing up in households where folk music and art were of primary importance. They will talk about how this shaped the art and music they make and how it continues to shape their own family today. Following the discussion, the duo will give a performance from the Lied Center stage.

The Lied Center is excited to partner with Osher Lifelong Learning Institute to present a safe and accessible Performance and Lecture Series for Osher participants and other community members. This collaboration aims to provide free access to quality, engaging performing arts experiences and education from the comfort and safety of participants’ homes, during times of social distancing.
