100 years ago: Music and movements from WWI America
100 years ago this month, the United States joined the fight in World War I.
To commemorate the anniversary, Minnesota musician and writer Dan Chouinard created "The War That Changed Us — Songs and Stories of World War I America." It features an all-star cast of local performers.
Part one includes commentary and music on movements of the era — such as the trend toward automobiles, women's suffrage and the violence that spread across Europe.
The show was presented April 7, 2017 at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul.
