Where: Wright Museum - Wolfeboro
Category: Special
Event description:

A musical look at the politics, personalities, and perspectives that remade a nation in the Civil War era

Presented by The Hardtacks


Combining documents and visual images from primary sources with camp songs, parlor music, hymns, battlefield rallying cries, and fiddle tunes, the Hardtacks examine the folksong as a means to enact living history, share perspectives, influence public perceptions of events, and simultaneously fuse and conserve cultures in times of change. Audience members are encouraged to participate.


The Hardtacks formed in 2012 to present folk music of the Civil War era for the New Hampshire Humanities' "Humanities To Go" programs. They perform at libraries, historical societies, schools, encampments, and other events. The Hardtacks’ wide-ranging programs take inspiration from the participatory culture of the Lyceum movement and 19th century folk traditions, engaging audiences in immersive explorations of history as a sung, spoken, and lived experience.
