Chico Schwall and friends will present “Thunder and Lies: The Ballads of Francis James Child,” at the Jaqua Concert Hall of the John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts in Eugene, on Thursday, February 26th. They’ll bring new life to English and Scottish popular songs that have endured from antiquity to the present day, in part because of Francis James Child’s efforts at Harvard in the late 1800s. Chico Schwall joins us here in the KLCC studios.
