The Music of New England from the Pilgrims to the Civil War

Museum presents Bartholomew, Cappers & Waynen Folk Trio in a Saturday Showcase: The Music of New England from the Pilgrims to the Civil War

The Cape Ann Museum welcomes Bartholomew, Cappers & Waynen Folk Trio to the Folly Cove Auditorium on Saturday, May 3. This event is free and open to the public. The program begins at 11:00 a.m.

Featuring music composed and arranged by trio member Paul Cappers, the group prides itself on performing ‘family oriented’ music. Soaring three part harmony, tuneful melodies, intricate finger picking, and tight ensemble are the trademarks of these veteran musicians. The three members of the group have all had extensive solo careers in performance and education.

The May 3 performance will present music that was being sung in New England from the Pilgrims to the Civil War. Enjoy an integrated experience of listening, singing, and participating in activities that bring this music to life.

Introduced in September 2005, Saturday Showcase is designed to bring parents and children into the Museum to share enriching experiences. The focus is on the visual and performing arts, with strong ties to Cape Ann. Painters, musicians, dancers, and storytellers are among the artists presenting this year’s programs. Funding to support this year’s Saturday Showcase series has been provided by The Goldhirsh Foundation.
