Massachusetts Performers Directory: Program Description
A Silver Dagger: Exploring Women's History Through Folk Songs
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.
60 - 90 minutes
Amplification if very large room; much prefer to perform without microphones.
Would like to sell the companion CD.
