lindasymphonyJoin us at the Marlboro Library on Sunday, March 11 at 2:00 pm to hear Linda Russell, an accomplished singer historian, lead you on a musical journey that ties into Women’s History Month.  Hear songs of 18th Century women at work, in love, as patriots and in mourning. Interspersed with the songs are excerpts from women’s diaries and letters of the day along with stories of Deborah Samson, who fought as a soldier in Washington’s army, and, of course, Martha Washington and Abigail Adams.

While performing on guitar, mountain and hammered dulcimers, penny whistle and limberjack, Linda’s rich singing voice illuminates our American heritage through patriotic anthems, broadsides, hymns and dance tunes.  The pioneers, patriots, and other figures of America’s past come to life before our very eyes as Linda sings and shares stories of their joys and hardships.

As a balladeer for the National Park Service at Federal Hall National Memorial in New York City for 16 years, Linda interpreted history through music and has been featured in A Prairie Home Companion, Carnegie HallAvery Fisher HallSymphony Space and the National Archives.  Linda is a recognized expert in historical interpretation.

Light refreshments will be served.  Walk-ins welcome, Click here to R.S.V.P.
