Putting Human Faces on the Textile Industry: The Workers of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company
Join Lucie Therrien on a walk around the globe at this free presentation on music history. Lucie follows the migration of French-Canadians and the evolution of their traditional music: its arrival in North America from France, the music’s crossing with Indian culture during the evangelization of Acadia and Quebec, its growth alongside English culture after British colonization, and its expansion from Quebec to New England, as well as from Acadia to Louisiana.
This presentation will take place in the Winnipesaukee Room on the second floor of the Carriage House. Advance reservations are not required.
