RALLY ‘ROUND THE FLAG: Monday, 3/9, 10 a.m. at the Bow High School Auditorium
A year-by-year musical look at the politics, personalities, and perspectives that remade a
nation in the Civil War era.
Audience members participate and sing along in an engaging, exploratory forum as we bring
new life to lyrics, documents, and visual images from primary sources. Through camp songs,
parlor music, hymns, battlefield rallying cries, and fiddle tunes, we examine the folksong as a
means to enact living history, share perspectives, influence public perceptions of events, and
simultaneously fuse and conserve cultures in times of change. This dynamic and engaging
session features instruments such as banjo, fiddle, dulcimer, accordion, whistle, and guitar, and
challenges participants to find new connections between song, art, and politics in American
history. Bow Heritage Commission will display area artifacts.
