The Historical Society of Islip Hamlet hosts Maria Fairchild and George Cannova as they present a program of:
Traditional American Music
Featured will be songs and dance tunes from the 1850s through the 1930s. They will show how the driving, Appalachian rhythms blended with English and Irish ballads created the uniquely American sounds of old-time, country and bluegrass music. Banjo, guitar, mandolin and vocal harmonies - plus a little history - bring the music to life. The program is free and open to the public and will be held at the Islip Public Library, 71 Monell Ave., Islip, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
For more information please call: 631/245-0675.
