Twelfth Night Concert at the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage
Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Usher the new year in and celebrate like it’s 1778! For most American colonists, Christmas Day was not a major holiday. But over the course of the following twelve days, leading up to Twelfth Night on January 6th, there were great feasts, church services, dances, games and other entertainments. Join balladeer Linda Russell as she explores the tunes and traditions of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Playing the hammered and mountain dulcimers, penny whistle and guitar, Linda sings and plays the carols, dance tunes and drinking songs of the past, interspersed with Yuletide poems, recipes and stories of the season.
Linda Russell is a balladeer who brings America’s past to life through song. She has served for many years as musical historian for the National Park Service at Federal Hall National Memorial and has performed at historic sites throughout New York and New Jersey.
