This is the fifth 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.
Let's Misbehave! Prohibition and Temperance, Speakeasies and Reefer Madness, New Dance Crazes and wide-open cities gave birth to exciting new composers and vocalists. The Roaring Twenties were filled with the music of Fats Waller, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington and Ira and George Gershwin, to name just a few.
The Americana series is supported in part by a grant from the Mid Cape Cultural Council.
