The Rose Ensemble present an Early American Educational Program

Saturday, November 5th from 11am-11:50.
The Rose Ensemble presents "And Glory Shown Around: Early American Ballads, Hymns & Dances Return to America’s folk roots".

In this fun new program, The Rose Ensemble presents colonial carols and dances, Appalachian folk songs, Southern shape-note singing, Shaker spiritual songs, and the styles of singing that gave birth to bluegrass. The Rose Ensemble musicians also bring a variety of instruments into the mix, including a wooden flute, an antique gut strung gourd banjo, jaw harp, guitar, fiddle and mandolin, with percussion provided by tambourine and stomping feet. Filled with sounds both familiar and fresh, this program explores our country’s history through its musical heritage.
