Great Indiana Songbook
February 24, 2021
The Great American Songbook Foundation is headquartered in Carmel, Indiana – the Heartland of America. A celebration of Indiana’s 2016 bicentennial, The Great Indiana Songbook highlights the songs, people and places that have helped Indiana carve out a distinct niche in America’s musical landscape. A tour of many of the state’s important contributions to music, both including and beyond the Great American Songbook, featured artists include Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Florence Henderson, the Ink Spots, the Jackson Five, Crystal Gale, Sandi Patty, Bill & Gloria Gaither, Noble Sissle, Carrie Newcomer, and many more.
