Please join us on the lawn on September 19 at 4pm for Jeff Warner and Banjos, Bones, and Ballads. (We will move to Zoom in case of rain.)
I met Jeff many years ago when I sang in a chorus in Portsmouth. His program was fascinating and wove music and stories so it was sometimes hard to tell them apart. He is appearing in Jackson courtesy of a grant from the NH Humanities and the Friends of the Jackson Library under our tent provided with funds from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 and administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the NH State Library. That is a mouthful but we are deeply grateful for all these organizations believing in our work.
Banjos, Bones, and Ballads features traditional songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, present the latest news from the distant past. They help us to interpret present-day life with an understanding of the working people who built our country. Tavern songs, banjo tunes, 18th century New England hymns, sailor songs, and humorous stories about traditional singers and their songs highlight this informative program by Jeff Warner.
Fun for the whole family!
