Somerset County - Somerville - Summer Concert at the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage: Songs of Nature

Sunday, July 23 - Somerset County

    Summer Concert at the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage: Songs of Nature
 
    On Sunday, July 23, beginning at 1:30 p.m., balladeer Linda Russell will perform historical music at the Old Dutch Parsonage historic site. Celebrate summer's cheer with songs of the American colonies! When colonists first set foot in the New World, they found a rich, raw landscape. Colonists saw nature as bounteous and beautiful but also dangerous, a savage wilderness.

     Join balladeer Linda Russell as she performs music celebrating nature's harmonies with poetic depictions of birds and flowers. Playing the hammered and mountain dulcimers, penny whistle and guitar, Linda sings and plays ballads, love songs, dance tunes, and working songs written in early America and brought over from the Old World.

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.

There is suggested ten dollar per-person donation fee to attend this program. All visitors must register for this program in advance. Call 908-725-1015 or email whouse3@verizon.net to register. Please register early, as seating is limited.
