Three Centuries of Music and History @ the Farmstead Arts Center

« All Events

March 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$15 – $20

What events of history and what kinds of music has the 1750 Kennedy Martin Stelle Farmstead possibly been a witness to?

In this new concert, sampling music from 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries Anne and Ridley Enslow attempt to answer these questions through song. This is a one hour show with the Enslows appearing in historical costumes with Ridley playing the violin and Anne playing the hammered dulcimer. Before each song, Anne will give a brief but interesting description of the piece and its historical context. Drinking songs, love songs, military recruiting songs, songs of liberty–these are some of the themes they will strike. The audience will also see how musical styles evolved over time, becoming less formal, less classical, and more rhythmic.

Tickets available in advance or cash only at the door.

The Farmstead Arts Center is a center for fine, practical, and performing arts in Basking Ridge, NJ. The Center operates under the Friends of the Kennedy Martin Stelle Farmstead, a 501c3 organization. This program will be held in the Farmstead’s wheelchair accessible main building. Parking is available on the Farmstead property, as well as at the parking lot for the Farmstead Park (a two minute walk through tall grass to the barn).
