Melting Pot of Ameri
online
Thursday, Jun. 24, 6:30 pm-7:30
You are invited to attend this musical and interactive program which explores early American instruments, songs and songwriters: where they come from; the songs and the people who made them. Instruments explored will range from Appalachian dulcimers, banjos and diddlybows to resonator guitars and mandolins.

Music will range from Appalachian to old time music, all the way to Delta and Piedmont Blues with a focus on the men and women who created this seminal American heritage. There will be time for questions and requests.

Robin O'Herin is a touring blues and gospel musician, specializing in historically rich, often interactive concerts that include original and traditional American music. Robin plays festivals, coffeehouses, & house concerts. Her concerts are warm, affirming experiences she shares with the audience. Let her take you on a journey of musical exploration through the Delta and Piedmont regions of the South. Song selections may include Robert Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson and Robin's own original blues and fingerstyle ballads.

Marylou Ferrante is a local Massachusetts multi-instrumentalist who performs country blues, traditional old time & folk music on guitar, mandolin and banjo.
