5/12/2021 - The Rutledge Summer Series: Travel from Home Presents-Songs of the Mountains

On Thursday, June 3rd, 2021 from 6-7pm on Zoom, join us for a musical journey through the Appalachian Mountains with songteller Judy Cook.

Listen to a performance of folk songs that tell the history and experience of the people of the mountains. These songs followed British immigrants as they made their homes in the Appalachians. Some tell powerful narratives, while others are delightfully nonsensical. There will be time for a question and answer session with the performer at the end of the program.

Judy Cook performs each year throughout the United States and Britain. She is recognized for her depth of understanding and storytelling ability in song, her dedication to the music and her willingness to do her research. Judy has one book and many CDs, including songs from most of her special programs.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this program is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. The Rutledge Summer Series was made possible by the Charles H. and Ella Emery Rutledge Fund. Registration is required. Zoom invitation links will be sent via email on the day of the program.
