SEP 29

Songs of War with the Apple Core Band

The troops that marched to the War Between the States in 1861 stepped off to popular songs of European composers, played by musicians recruited from small town bands. Many of those foreign tunes were soon transformed into lively military marches or sweet sad ballads sung in camps by homesick soldiers.

The Farnsworth House Hometown Band will perform Victorian and Civil War music for an original outdoor concert in the encampment behind the Inn. Hear the stories about the music during this one-hour family-friendly presentation.
