Music of the Civil War Era - Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at 6:30PM
Dressed in 19th-century-style clothing, musician and historian Joe Becton will perform music from Francis Johnson (1830s) to Julia Ward Howe (1860s). Each song is accompanied by a story that frames the song in its historic context, and the performance includes spirituals, Underground Railroad songs, minstrel songs, and more. Group participation is highly encouraged! This is an all-ages program.
