New York, NY, April 08, 2011 -- The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York, located at 20 West 44th St between 5th & 6th Avenues in Manhattan, is proud to announce the next installment of our cultural series of live music and discussion entitled “Muse & Music”. Geoffrey Wilson of experimental folk band Jus Post Bellum (Latin for "Justice After War"), will be the featured performer at the event, to be held at the General Society Library on April 14, 2011.

Endeavoring to go beyond the mechanics of writing a song, Muse & Music pairs acoustic performances with in-depth discussions on the trade, craft and passion of songwriting and the muses that inspire music. Guest host Iman Lababedi, rock critic and co-editor of www.rocknycliveandrecorded.com will lead a discussion with Geoffrey to reveal the inspiration for his music and Geoffrey will perform several songs, in addition to participating in a brief question and answer exchange with attendees.

Geoffrey Wilson writes and performs songs he calls "historical fiction" which emphasize the individual while taking inspiration from the people, places and events of the Civil War era. This events marks the General Society's observance of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, and remembrance of the 1st New York Volunteer Engineer Regiment who served in the war, many of whom were General Society members.
