**Correction: in the Anne Bonny story, in regards to her death, we say 1881, but we mean 1781, as you’d probably guess from our framing it around the American Revolution – sorry!**

This whole mess was my idea. I'm really in to music and I love history. I am the Manager of Youth and Family Programs at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville, KY. I've curated exhibits about Lewis and Clark and other aspects of American History. I've created countless hours of history-focused programming, and shared some great times thinking, learning, talking, and laughing about the past and future with some great people - both adults and children.
