Songs of Nature

Linda Russell


18th century balladeer & musician

Sunday, July 23, 2017

1:30 pm

Celebrate the songs of the American colonies! When colonists first set foot in the New World, they found a rich, raw landscape that appeared untamed. Colonists saw nature as beautiful and yet a source of danger, a savage wilderness. Join balladeer Linda Russell as she performs music celebrating nature’s harmonies with poetic depictions of birds and flowers, but also human struggles with nature’s perils. Playing the hammered and mountain dulcimers, penny whistle and guitar, Linda sings and plays ballads, love songs, dance tunes, and working songs written in early America and brought over from the Old World.
