Summer Series: Hank Being Hank

June 21, 2019  5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Enjoy our Summer Series - presentations on Black Hills figures or events packed with history and fun! 
Each presentation lasts an hour, including a Q&A.

On June 21, meet Hank Harris, an individualist. Hank brings his own unique perspectives in his songs that are paired with his photography.

Hank will perform ballads composed in tribute to the beautiful Black Hills and the area - some appearing on his work, "Deadwood Songbook" - while his photography dances across the screen of our Wells Fargo Theater. This will be fun for all ages and a multimedia experience. 

Mostly known for his musical talents, Harris is a South Dakota legend. He has played with The Red Willow Band, DD and the Fayrohs and many more over a career that has spanned decades.

This Midwest Emmy nominee has also written soundtracks for two documentaries. His musical work “Deadwood Songbook” currently plays at The Journey Museum and Learning Center.

Harris believes it’s important to “find your own voice and do your own thing.” To that point, he doesn’t plan which music he’ll perform until the moment is upon him.

He gained an interest in photography as a youngster, and he has since taken his camera all over the world. His work with photography is as much a meditative practice as it is a pastime.

“I travel a lot, so it’ll be everything from the Badlands to the Black Hills to the East Coast to the West Coast to Central America,” Harris says.

Admission for a Summer Series event is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and half-off for members. Call 394-6923 to reserve seats.
