misc_none 2:30 PM  -  4:00 PM Remember the Ladies: A History of American Women in Song, A lecture by Linda Russell Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Desk   845-485-3445 x3702   adultevents@poklib.org
   

This presentation is a musical survey of the history of women in America. By looking at the popular songs of the past -- the ballads, love songs, suffrage anthems, work songs and dance tunes -- we can trace the perceptions and realities of women's lives. The music of the day shows the role of women in 18th and 19th century American society. Accompanying herself on mountain and hammered dulcimers, pennywhistle, guitar and limberjack, Linda Russell explores the images in the songs, interspersing the music with lively commentary that includes excerpts from diaries and letters in which the women tell their stories in their own words.  This lecture is made possible by the New York Council for the Humanities.
