Dream of a Good Death
In an evening of music and history, Clark Hansbarger’s Dream of a Good Death traces the arc of the Civil War from its beginning to its end. Part folk opera, part multi-media lecture, this cycle of original songs follows the trials, hopes, fears and sacrifices of Civil War soldiers as they struggle through the Union conquest of Port Royal, the fires in The Wilderness, the killing fields of Cold Harbor, and the long siege of Petersburg. Joining Clark onstage are some of the Shenandoah Valley’s finest Americana musicians, including Mike Jewell, Allen Kitselman, and Gary McGraw. A National Endowment of the Arts Fellow and A PEN Syndicated Fiction Award winner, Clark’s writing has been featured on National Public Radio’s The Sound of Writing and in magazines such as Shenandoah, Witness, Web del Sol, and The Gettysburg Review.
