Celebrating New England: Chanteys, Ballads, Folktales & More

(Outdoors, rain date 7/29)

This program will involve the audience in a variety of cultural traditions right here on the library lawn!  It will include ghost ballads & sea chanteys, farming songs, Native American stories, folk tales and family tales.  There will be plenty of sing-alongs, and even a short lesson in how to play music with spoons from a kitchen drawer.

Pete Seeger called Davis "thoughtful, creative, human, and a fantastic storyteller."  Davis' traditional and participatory performance style empowers and encourages audiences of all ages to join in the fun, and to take the songs and stories home with them to share with others. Please register below or by calling 583-3408.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Ludlow Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Mass. Cultural Council, a state agency.
