Randall Poster, who has served as music supervisor on movies and television shows including "Moonrise Kingdom" and Boardwalk Empire," will speak about the new album he conceived "Divided & United: Civil War Music Today" at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, in McCormick Hall, Room 106. "Divided & United" features new recordings of Civil War songs by country, bluegrass, folk and other performers, including Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Taj Mahal and others. Poster was inspired to make the 32-track collection while working on the film "Country Strong" in Nashville.
