Two singers-interpreters-musicians from the Alsace region of France will present a cabaret-style evening of French songs about America, "L'Amerique Dans la Chanson FranÃ§aise" tonight (Wednesday, Oct. 19) at 8 p.m. in Killian Hall. Accompanied by piano and accordion, Jean-Marie Hummel and Liselotte Hamm will perform a medley of songs centered on enduring French myths about various U.S. icons: Hollywood and its stars; the West and its cowboys, gold-diggers and gangsters; the soldiers of WWI and WWII; and the celebrated cities of New York, San Francisco and Nashville.
