Songs of Old New Hampshire
Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Location: Plaistow Public Library 85 Main St.
Drawing heavily on the repertoire of traditional singer Lena Bourne Fish (1873-1945) of Jaffrey and Temple, New Hampshire, Jeff Warner offers the songs and stories that, in the words of Carl Sandburg, tell us “where we came from and what brought us along.” These ballads, love songs and comic pieces reveal the experiences and emotions of daily life in the days before movies, sound recordings, and for some, books. Songs from the lumber camps, the decks of sailing ships, the textile mills and the war between the sexes offer views of pre-industrial New England and a chance to hear living artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries.
Lucia Theberge, Communications Supervisor of the Plaistow Police Department, working in partnership with the Historical Society, has added a new section “Plaistow PD History” to the PPD website. Our goal is to gather information, photographs and objects such as badges, patches and uniforms for display at the museum and on the PPD website.
