Chicago musician Leonardo brings The Roaring Twenties to Coffeyville in a musical celebration of the decade that forever changed America. Performing on the popular instruments of the time, the 4-string banjo and ukulele, Leonardo will share the songs and stories of the era of the Flapper, Mobster, Talkie, and Speakeasy. Also known as the Jazz Age, the 1920's represented the start of America's modern age and marked significant changes in society that still resound today.
Leonardo is a Parents' Choice Award winning musician who for over 20 years has been performing at schools, libraries and performing arts venues nationwide. School Library Journal wrote that he has a "...remarkable understanding of a child's world" and Grammy.com said his songs were "empowering, thoughtful, original compositions..." With a high energy and interactive style, his performances entertain, educate, and empower audiences of all ages and abilities. To learn more about Leonardo, please visit LeonardoMusic.com.
