In celebration of Women’s History Month, acclaimed historical musician Linda Russell will explore the women of the past as reflected in the popular songs and stories of the day—in their own words! Discover historic love songs, laments, ballads, work songs, parlor ditties, and suffrage anthems, and listen to excerpts from women’s diaries and letters. You can even try out some of her instruments, including the mountain and hammered dulcimers, pennywhistle, guitar, and limberjack.
