About the Artist

Jana Harris (Sultan) received a 2004 GAP for the production of a CD of the scripted musical production We Never Speak of It: Idaho Wyoming Poems, 1889-90. Harris’s work focuses on the lives of women and children from the pioneer era and We Never Speak of It is a collaborative project done with Miscellany, a group of musicians who play instruments and music authentic to the 19th century American West. The poems from the collection will be read in conjunction with a musical presentation of period songs, hymns, and work songs, depicting “the real life stories of frontier women and children who were stranded or settled along the trails of the great Western Migration.”

Harris’ latest work, Horses Never Lie about Love: The Story of a True Heart Named True Colors, was published in 2012 by Free Press.
