The “Music of the American Colonies” will be performed by Anne and Ridley Enslow. This hour-long show will transport you to the world of our Founders. Anne and Ridley both sing, and play instruments that are authentic to the period.

In every age, the people put themselves, their hopes, their dreams—and often, their humor—into their music. The colonial period was no exception, as you will see in this lively show, which includes sea shanties, dance tunes, drinking songs, “liberty songs,” and of course, love songs.

”Music of the American Colonies” highlights many favorite colonial songs. It is a show for the whole family, complete with a dancing limberjack (wooden puppet) that never fails to please.

The Enslows, who have appeared at the Farmstead on several previous occasions, will wear period dress and play instruments that are appropriate to the colonial period. Ridley plays an 18th-century violin built in France in 1776, and Anne is a master of the hammered dulcimer, a trapezoidal instrument with nearly 100 strings that are struck with little wooden hammers.
