Zither player needed in Detroit
Posted: Wed Nov 01, 2017 10:35 am
Hi Folks, received this note from James Johnson at The Henry Ford. If anyone is able to assist, please contact him.
I am seeking your assistance in making contact with Zither players in the Detroit area. We would like to include performers in our upcoming Holiday Nights program in Greenfield Village at Menlo Park. Thomas Edison’s glass blower’s name was Ludwig Boehm, he lived in the glass blowing shed at Menlo Park during the 1870s and 80s, and played the Zither. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
