Along the way, you'll hear authentic, traditional songs from the region's homes, farms, mountains, waterways, and communities.

NEW for 2016-17!

This highly interactive, participatory program uses primary sources to tell the story of "the founding father without a father", from his childhood in Nevis to the infamous duel with Aaron Burr. This program was premiered earlier this year at the NY Historical Society in NYC with great success and to much acclaim.
