Concert for Darwin

Next month marks the 150th Anniversary of the publishing of Origin of Species, Charles Darwin’s seminal work that revolutionized the scientific world. To celebrate the anniversary, The Friends of Kitzmiller v. Dover are hosting a Concert for Darwin at 7 p.m. Saturday Nov. 7 at Harrisburg’s Midtown Scholar.
Because, as evolutionary biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky famously said, “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.”

Featured at the event will be Vancouver-based rap-lit artist Baba Brinkman, whose performance of “Rap Guide to Evolution” won the coveted Scotsman Fringe First Award in Edinburgh Scotland’s prestigious Fringe Festival.

As a special treat, biologist, science author and Brown University professor Ken Miller, whose testimony as the Dover plaintiffs’ lead science expert led to some of the trial‘s most powerful moments, will be giving a talk about Darwin and his legacy and how it inspired him.

Also performing will be alt-folk singer-songwriter Jefferson Pepper, whose recent CD release American Evolution, which was inspired by the Kitzmiller trial, reached No. 9 on the Euro Americana chart.

Special guests will perform selected readings from Origin of Species.

Tickets are $15 and can be ordered on line. For more information on Concert for Darwin, or to order tickets, go to: http://www.americanfallout.com/concert_for_darwin.html
