Washington & His Spies – A Musical Presentation @ the Farmstead Arts Center

October 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
$15 – $20

Join Anne and Ridley Enslow as they perform a new musical program on George Washington and His Spies. In this up close and personal 60-minute performance, they will perform songs about Major John Andre, the famous British spy hanged by the Americans; Benedict Arnold, brilliant general and ultimate traitor who was working with Andre; and many others central to the plot of the American Revolution. The Enslows entertain and inform through song. Their specialty is America’s colonial history and the American Revolution. For this performance, they will appear in colonial costumes of the 1770s era. Anne sings and plays the hammered dulcimer, a trapezoidal instrument with nearly 100 strings that are struck with miniature hammers. She has found documentation that dulcimers were here in the colonial period. Ridley sings and plays the violin—in this case, a violin made in France in 1776 by Claude Francois Vuillaume. 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.
