Seamus Connolly to receive honor for adding to the rich tapestry of the United States


The concert will also be live-streamed at arts.gov at 8 p.m. and it will be archived there afterwards.  This is an excellent opportunity to view the diversity and breadth of multicultural contributions these honors signify every year in the field of the traditional arts.

Exposure to the great multicultural wealth in our country is given too little attention in our national media, with way too much attention devoted to “reality shows” and gimmicky competitions driven by crass commercialism.

Meanwhile, meaningful programs developed by the National Endowment for the Arts are under siege and subject to the wrath of budget-cutters in Congress who see little value in cultural funding like this for the arts and arts education and promotion.  Our national treasures are to be recognized for the valuable contributions they make to America, and those are priceless.
