World War I Songs and Stories

Ramblin' Richard returns!

 

It was 100 years ago.  The United States declared war on Germany in 1917 and we became participants in World War I.  Europe was in turmoil in the early teens, monarchies were flexing their muscles seeking to expand their borders, and their emboldened leaders brought war to the continent.  The “Great War” had begun a few years earlier in 1914 and ended in 1918 with the November 11 th armistice.   But then an unexpected event burst onto the scene, tragically taking many more lives than the war itself.  Richard tells this compelling story, as well.

A Tudor Christmas

A Historical perspective on Christmas!

Christmas and New Year’s was a time of both fasting and celebration at the English Tudor court. Elaborate masques and revelries coincided with feasts and gift-giving. While modern Christmas draws many of its traditions from the late 19th/ early 20th century, we can find some parallels in Henry VIII’s world. Christmas, and the twelve days associated with it, had their own distinct style- this talk will explore the sights, sounds, and smells of a Tudor Christmas. Hail and Wassail!
