Our silent auction will be an online auction coming in December 2023. Stay tuned for more information!

Speaker- Diane Taraz

Diane Taraz presents songs enjoyed by both sides during the American Revolution, exploring the fascinating world behind the lyrics. In colonial dress, she sings and accompanies herself on a mountain dulcimer and an instrument similar to the English guitar, which women played in Colonial times. Her crystal-clear voice is the perfect vehicle for songs usually sung without instruments.
