  12. “Goodbye Booze”: The Music of Prohibition

    February 6, 2023, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    @
    Hampton History Museum

    Gospel songwriters, Tin Pan Alley tunesmiths, and even moonshiners and bootleggers produced a torrent of commentary on alcohol in song. The mass marketing of sound recordings corresponded closely with the rise of the Prohibition movement, leaving us with thousands of 78-rpm records waxed by songsters on every side of the issue. From the moral tales of family destruction penned by Temperance advocates to the sly political and comedic songs of Prohibition skeptics and opponents, music tracked the popular debate and mood. In this presentation, Dr. Gregg D. Kimball of the Library of Virginia will trace this musical legacy through spoken narrative, period images, and live and recorded music. Feel free to song along!
