McGrath, Cathy “THE HEART OF AMERICAN MUSIC” 19th century songs of our heritage History,
Music,
Other
Based on research done for music for the Genesee Country Village & Museum with Flint Hill Folk, Cathy McGrath presents a program of nineteenth century heritage music in authentic period dress and with instruments appropriate to the era. The audience is encouraged to participate by singing their hearts out! Songs are chosen from two books which were collections compiled from thousands of people who sent in their favorite songs of the previous century. From Heart Songs (1909): “Each song recalls to the individual reader some tender, sad, joyous or martial association.” From Songs That Never Grow Old (1903): “A collection of old-time songs that have long been tried and forever loved.” Songs of all sorts of categories are presented - love, home, Erie Canal, historic, patriotic, dancing, popular and folk songs - and represent a valuable gauge to the popular taste in music at that time. These melodies are part of our collective past, yet still resonate today. An experienced folk music performer, Cathy uses an 1870’s guitar, limberjack puppets, antique flute, and rolled tin whistle in this historical program and encourages audience participation.
