When Music Was Local: Ballads, Bunkhouses, Fiddles and Flings

  • Details
  • Join performer and teaching artist Dave Ruch for a fascinating concert of Adirondack music and stories. From the earliest days of settlement in this remote section of New York, and even prior to that with travelling groups of Mohawks and other Native American hunters, music has sustained the people of the North Country, AND, we're fortunate that so much of it has been documented and preserved for us to enjoy today. French-Canadian loggers and trappers, Yankee settlers from New England, waves of British Isles and Irish immigrants coming directly across or down from Atlantic Canada, rural New Yorkers in search of work, escaped and freed slaves - - each contributed to a rich store of self-made music which began in the early ninetieth century and continues to this day.
