This is the first concert of a six- part music series, “Americana: A New Voice for a New Nation”, presented by the Yarmouth New Church Preservation Foundation (YNCPF) with three noted Cape Cod musicians producing the series: Ellen Adamson, Joan Kirchner and Jo Brisbane. Concerts will take place at 5pm on Sunday afternoons from May through October 2019. Tickets are $20 per event, (or a special per concert savings of $90 for the entire 6 concert series), and will be available at the door and on Eventbrite.
Each musical performance will include educational and entertaining readings related to the history of that era.
Music of the Revolutionary War era will be performed by folk groups The Cape Cod Bluejackets and Just Plain Folk, along with other local soloists.
Fife and drum songs, popular fiddle tunes of the day and parlor songs by Francis Hopkinson will form this program, suggesting the earliest tableau of the new nation.
The Americana series is supported in part by a grant from the Mid Cape Cultural Council.
