When you first hear Goodnight Moonshine it brings a wave of nostalgia, conjuring teenage heartache- then perhaps a similar sensation to falling deeply in love. As the music fades you’re left grappling with what it is to stay in love with something both beautiful and flawed. Courageous unveiling and depth of experience make the collaboration between married couple Molly Venter and Eben Pariser addictively captivating.

Goodnight Moonshine is Molly Venter’s latest musical project, a collaboration with her husband Eben Pariser. She has performed at the Kentucky Coffeetree Cafe with the group Red Molly.

Molly’s voice has caught the ear of industry giants, and been prominently featured on FOX television, Apple Computers and in Warner Brothers films. Consummate performers, Molly and Eben have also appeared nationally and internationally, performing 100+ shows a year, with their respective bands Red Molly and Roosevelt Dime. Their co-write “Willow Tree” was a #1 hit on the folk charts in 2014 and was featured in USA Today.

Molly and Eben are joined with Jaret Ellis for this performance.

6:30 – 8:00 pm – Emilie Todd Helm: Lincoln’s Confederate “Little Sister”, at the Paul Sawyier Public Library, 319 Wapping Street

Presented by Stuart W. Sanders, this talk will examine the life of Emilie Todd Helm, the rebel sister-in-law of President Abraham Lincoln, as well as the life of her husband, Confederate General Ben Hardin Helm.

As the wife of a Confederate general and the half-sister of Mary Todd Lincoln, Emilie was torn between two worlds. Having lost several brothers in the Civil War, she suffered another blow when her husband was killed at the Battle of Chickamauga. In December 1863, she traveled to the White House and mourned with Mary Lincoln. Although politicians condemned the Union commander-in-chief for hosting this rebel widow, to President Lincoln she was simply “Little Sister,” a grieving family member who brought comfort to his wife. Sadly, a year later, Emilie ended contact with Mary after she blamed Lincoln for their family woes. Their relationship–fractured like their family–was another casualty of the war.

Sanders will discuss Emilie’s life, her controversial 1863 visit to the White House, and her unique role in postwar reconciliation, when she revered her husband’s Confederate legacy while commemorating Lincoln’s memory.

This free event is sponsored by the Frankfort Civil War Roundtable, Capital City Museum, and PSPL. For more information, contact Diane Dehoney at 352-2665×108 or diane@pspl.org.
