Banjos, Bones, and Ballads

Traditional songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, present, and the latest news from the distant past. They help us interpret present-day life with an understanding of the working people who built our country. Tavern songs, banjo tunes, 18th century New England hymns, sailor songs, and humorous stories about traditional singers and their songs highlight this informative program by Jeff Warner. Brought to you by a grant through the NH Humanities. For more information visit www.nhhumanities.org.
