Rosenberg, Paul Homespun Family Dance History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
Homespun Community Dancing provides fun, engaging and educational library events that teach about life before electricity in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Homespun Family Dance takes the audience/participants back to a time when families made their own entertainment with homemade music and dance. Everyone gets involved – from ages 2 to 102 -- in easy-to-learn American barn dance favorites and dances from around the world. All dances are taught, and danced to LIVE folk music that has been known to transform even the most adamant, grimacing youngsters declaring “I will never dance” into smiling dance-lovers asking: “When is the next dance?” “Homespun Family Dance” includes a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures. We play tunes, sing songs, and teach about the origins of traditional folk instruments including the fiddle, modern and gourd banjo, mandolin, penny whistle, recorder, and more.

Bromka, Sondra & John Bells & Motley Victorian Musical Celebration of Christmas Past History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Music and customs of a traditional Christmas of Dickens' time included jovial and ceremonial songs with choruses for all to share, ballads steeped history, costumed characters or 'guisers,' tableaux and games, dances, and the presence of holly, ivy, and evergreen. This musical voyage back to the spirit of Christmas Past offers a magical time for family and friends to gather and share the origins of our traditions. Across England, wealthy households would celebrate with great musical feasts and pageants, and folks would go from door to door, singing wassailing songs that ended with the request for 'a toast and a good loaf or cheese, and we’ll be on our way.' Featured will be wassail songs from Cornwall, Somerset, and Gloucestershire. Other traditions will include a special processional bagpipe air from Northumberland to 'pipe your bounds' to insure abundance and well being throughout the new year. This peek behind the history of Christmas celebration uncovers the universal within the season's mirth and merriment, and plants the seeds of ideas for reestablishing some of the old traditional elements for community celebrations - further enriching the meaning and majesty of this important holiday season.
