All day festival, featuring music & historic demonstrations. MY concert will be at 1:00 pm.
I'll be playing some music, but this weekend will be giving a lecture: "British Isles to the American Frontier - Our Musical Roots" A musical journey, Scots-Irish to the American frontier. Lecture/music. Samples of music from the contributing cultures as Scots (over a period of several hundred years) moved from Scotland to Northern Ireland to the American colonies and into the Virginia frontier. These are the foundations of the Scots-Irish culture and the roots of Appalachian music.
Saturday night concert at 7:30 in association with Women on the Frontier conference. The conference will be going on all weekend, April 16-17.
Participating during the weekend in big historic event.
Live music, dance, genealogy, celtic culture, food truck, workshops, all day long.
Combine a love for traditional folk music with a strong interest in traditional British Isles & colonial American life & culture and you get a guy that dresses funny and plays and sings Irish pub songs and Scottish / English ballads popular in the 1780's.
