The War of 1812: Songs and Stories from New York and Beyond

November 7, 6:00 PM

A lecture by Dave Ruch

In this lecture/concert, Dave Ruch presents a fascinating portrait of the War of 1812 through the songs and stories of the people themselves. Ruch has dug deeply into archival recordings, diaries, old newspapers and other historical manuscripts to unearth a wealth of rarely-heard music which, alongside some of the classics from the war, offers a rounded and fascinating picture of this "second war of independence." Special emphasis is given to New York State's important role in the conflict.
