Winter Songs & Stories @ Blackfriars
Monday, February 13, 2023
07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
Blackfriars Playhouse, South Market Street, Staunton, VA, USA
When English and Scottish settlers came to the Colonies, they brought music, stories, and songs to bring light and laughter to long, cold winter nights. These tales and tunes took on lives of their own around the campfires and hearths of the New World. Jigs and reels migrated from bagpipes to banjos, and beloved characters like Jack were joined by newcomers like Mutsmag in the Appalachian hills.
Shakespeare’s plays also made their way across the Atlantic, beloved by Washington, Jefferson, and many others. The music and drama of these monumental works finds a perfect home in this concert’s opening night venue, an American reproduction of Shakespeare’s Blackfriars Playhouse.
Join EMAP artists Brian Kay (guitar, vocals), David McCormick (baroque violin), Peter Walker (bagpipe, vocals), and Sarah Walker (storyteller) for Winter Songs and Stories, an intimate evening of music from the British Isles and America.
