Songs of Old New Hampshire - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/14/2016 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Drawing heavily on the repertoire of traditional singer Lena Bourne Fish (1873-1945) of Jaffrey and Temple, New Hampshire, Jeff Warner offers the songs and stories that, in the words of Carl Sandburg, tell us "where we came from and what brought us along." These ballads, love songs and comic pieces, reveal the experiences and emotions of daily life in the days before movies, sound recordings and, for some, books. Songs from the lumber camps, the decks of sailing ships, the textile mills and the war between the sexes offer views or pre-industrial New England and a chance to hear living artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries.
