The Hardtacks / Bio

{{ Musicians/educators Woody Pringle and Marek Bennett present an overview of the American Civil War with their unique combination of period music and visual materials. }}
Audience members participate and sing along in an energizing forum as we explore lyrics, documents, and visual images from sources such as the Library of Congress. Through camp songs, parlor music, hymns, battlefield rallying cries, and fiddle tunes, we examine the folksong as a means to enact living history, share perspectives, influence public perceptions of events, and simultaneously fuse and conserve cultures in times of change. This dynamic and engaging session features instruments such as banjo, fiddle, dulcimer, accordion, whistle, and guitar, and challenges participants to find new connections between song, art, and politics in American history.
