With instruments ranging from ukulele to banjolin to slide whistle and clarinet, Louise Anderson and Diana Wagner reveal the music of Peter Dale Wimbrow, early radio star, ukulele master, performer, and philanthropist. A small-town boy from early 20th century Worcester County, Maryland, Wimbrow became a nationwide radio and stage sensation, all the while documenting his native Eastern Shore in song. In this lecture-performance, Louise and Diana will take you along on their archival journey to discover Wimbrow’s music, life, and legacy. A sought-after Eastern Shore musician, Diana Wagner is Associate Professor of Education at Salisbury University, where she teaches social justice education, research methods and outdoor leadership. Wagner learned to play guitar in 1977, thanks to a public-school music program. She is a multi-instrumentalist who specializes in collecting historic and traditional folk and blues music. She has worked extensively with the archives of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, where she has translated and transcribed archival source documents to aid in survivor and victim research. Wagner also hosts the weekly radio show, Chesapeake Folk, carried on several Eastern Shore radio stations, including the regional NPR affiliate.  For more information on her musical adventures, visit www. dianawagnermusic.com. Louise L. Anderson, Associate Professor of Music and Coordinator for Music Education at Salisbury University, holds a PhD in Music Education from Temple University in Philadelphia and an M.A. in Humanities from Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Anderson has 30 years of experience teaching grades K-12 encompassing everything from instrumental and string instruction to choral. After finding a ukulele in a university closet, Dr. Anderson embraced this small wonder and has incorporated ukulele into many different types of educational and personal projects ever since.
