Music at Gore Place Presents: O'Carolan Etcetera
Wednesday, September 25, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
This wonderful trio of guitar, flute, fiddle ( and sometimes hurdy-gurdy) performs selections from three centuries of traditional instrumental music: early English dance tunes that Jane Austen would have known; Irish jigs and Scottish airs; reels from old New England that set toes a-tapping; and — not to be missed — French Canadian tunes played on the hurdy gurdy.
When & Where
Gore Place, the Federal period, historic house and estate of Massachusetts Governor Christopher Gore, includes a small farm with sheep, goats and poultry. The elegantly furnished mansion has been called “the Monticello of the North” and architectural historians consider it to be the most significant Federal period mansion in New England.
