About Folk Wandering


Book by Jaclyn Backhaus

Directed by Andrew Neisler

Music by Blake Allen, Mike Brun, Andrew R. Butler, Joel Esher, Alex Fast, Jo Lampert, Barrie McLain, Annie Tippe, and Dominique Toney

In 1911, Rosealia dreams of a better life.

In 1933, Kai struggles to keep her daughter safe.

In 1955, Hannah finally fights for herself.

Folk Wandering is a sweeping new musical conjured from the hearts and minds of Jaclyn Backhaus (Men on Boats), Andrew Neisler (Charlatan, Clown Bar), and nine emerging singer-songwriters. This expansive story investigates the making and breaking of the American dream across three bygone generations. Join Pipeline Theatre Company and their band of troubadours this spring for an awakening of the hope, heartache, and longing that binds us all together.
