On the Lookout for Lafayette: Tracing Travels & Tours through New Jersey

The Marquis de Lafayette, on mission for George Washington at the Court of Versailles, did not join Gen. Washington’s winter headquarters at Wallace House for the Continental Army’s Middlebrook Cantonment of 1778-79, but Lafayette’s legacy loomed so large that a century after Lafayette’s Farewell Tour of the United States the Revolutionary Memorial Society furnished a “Gen. La Fayette Room” at the future Wallace House State Historic Site. Paul Larson of American Friends of Lafayette introduces the life and legacy of Lafayette in the United States and France, tracing Lafayette's travels in New Jersey as volunteer to George Washington in the Revolutionary War and as the Nation's Guest on his Farewell Tour of 1824-25. Saturday, March 2, 2024, 2:30 p.m. Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage Association St. John’s Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 158 West High Street, Somerville, NJ 08876

Deni Bonet & Chris Flynn at Watchung Arts Center

Deni Bonet & Chris Flynn at Watchung Arts Center “The whole is greater than the sum of the parts”. So it is with Deni Bonet & Chris Flynn. As individual artists, they have more than made their mark in music. As a duo, they have created something extra, engaging and extremely entertaining. Bonet’s voice and violin, and Flynn’s guitar and voice, have echoed through the United Nations and the White House, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Mountain Stage. They have shared stages with REM, Cyndi Lauper, Warren Zevon, Sarah McLachlan, and many others. Their audiences have ranged from festivalgoers, to Presidents and the FBI. They've performed their original music as soloists with several full symphony orchestras. For the last five years, they have melded that skill, experience and musicality on stages across Europe and America, from festivals to house concerts, libraries to radio stations. Their lively and humorous shows are full of self-penned songs and instrumentals, and the warm banter of two people completely at one on the stage.
