May 25, 2017 - OBHS Annual Meeting and Members Opening: “Many Were Expert in Music”: Songs from the Forgotten Frontier

6:30 pm (Counting House)

 Come celebrate the opening of our new exhibit, Forgotten Frontier: Untold Stories of the Piscataqua. Join us for an evening featuring cakes, ale and an original performance of period song. John Kemp and Kathleen Curtin, formerly of Plimoth Plantation, will survey the place of music in the lives of English colonists, from sacred psalms to popular tavern tunes. Kemp assumes the role of Deacon Samuel Fuller to demonstrate a “simpling” of songs familiar to early English arrivals in the Piscataqua. For OBHS members; new members are welcome.
