Bach's Lunch Lecture - Keith Murphy, "Collecting the Songs"

Bach's Lunch Lecture - Keith Murphy,

Collecting the Songs: Preserving traditional music in Canada & New England

Keith Murphy, speaker

In the early 20th century, traditional song collectors travelled around (mostly the countryside) in Atlantic Canada and Northern New England, meeting singers and transcribing and publishing their songs. Today we have those song collectors to thank for preserving age-old oral traditions and passing down the traditional music we enjoy.

. . . . . . .

Much more than Bach, the Bach's Lunch series explores a range of musical topics and genres in informal, free, lunch-hour lectures and concerts the first and second Thursdays of each month, November through June.

Bach's Lunch lectures and concerts are held in the Recital Hall, 23 Wall Street, downtown Concord; they begin at 12:10 and conclude by 12:50 p.m. Bring your lunch - and your friends!

The Bach’s Lunch Series is sponsored by The Timothy and Abigail B. Walker Lecture Fund and The Couch Trusts; TD Wealth Management, NA; Trustee. For more information, call 603-228-1196 or visit www.ccmusicschool.org.
