Echoes of the Future Past: An Antique Concert on Pyne Street Reimagined

Show + Dinner

Folksongs! Brass band! Mozart! Fiddle and banjo! Local 18th century harmony singing! Community music and history with a dose of humor, and a meal afterwards to boot.

The ‘Antique Concerte on Pyne Street” announced on a crumpled 1873 playbill found during renovation of the Bombyx Center for Arts and Equity posed a sonic and historical mystery. What on earth WAS this?

Conveniently, such concerts are the subject of a PhD dissertation by Bombyx friend Tim Eriksen. Also conveniently, the music involved was great! And this thoroughly local variety of entertainment was ripe for reimagining by the Bombyx/“Pyne Street” community 150 years in the future. 

Performers include:
Tim Eriksen
Shapenote Singers
Mountain River Taiko
Little Roots/Little Fiddles and Little Ukes: (Mia Friedman plus a gaggle of children)
John Hughes, kora
Angie Shyr and Greg Diehl, classical violin and viola duo
Possible surprise guests!

This ticket has two options: Show Only or Show + Dinner. Dinner tickets are limited, so be sure to get yours now!

This event is presented in collaboration with the Northampton Arts Council, Massachusetts Cultural Council, Florence Congregational Church, Beit Ahavah, Historic Northampton, and the David Ruggles Center.
