Come enjoy American music of the American Revolution, and the War of 1812, with renowned specialists David & Ginger Hildebrand.
The Hildebrands recreate the patriotic songs, ballads, marches, dance tunes, and theater songs popular that tell the story of America’s first and second wars for independence, as these two events were then called. The couple perform this music on period appropriate instruments, including the violin, Baroque guitar, English guitar, hammered dulcimer, spinet (harpsichord), and English flute. Costumed in period dress and with spoken introductions as well as a detailed program handout, the Hildebrands will bring their musical and historical expertise to what promises to be both an entertaining and educational evening. Especially appropriate to this region, the Hildebrands will perform several of the broadside ballads collected in Boston in 1814 and preserved at the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester.
