A Silver Dagger: Exploring Women's History Through Folk Songs

Program Category
Educational Programs

teen to adult


Folk songs give us a glimpse into the lives of ordinary women in centuries past, who left behind few written records. In a clear, vibrant voice, Diane sings compelling songs used for centuries to speed work, lift spirits, or ease an aching heart. She accompanies herself on dulcimer and guitar. The stories behind the songs show how attitudes and beliefs from the past still echo in our lives today.

$200. Flexible to accommodate limited budgets.
