Music at the Museum
March 12, 2010
The Westford Historical Society presents Yankee Notions. Widely known for their high-spirited programs, Yankee Notions performs traditional and contemporary music of New England. The duo consists of Jim Douglas on vocals, guitar, and concertina, and Tim Van Egmond on vocals, hammered dulcimer, pennywhistle, and limberjack. Whether it's an old song in praise of the farmer's life, a rollicking sea chantey, tandem telling of a tall tale, toe-tapping dance tunes, or a recent song about the character and characters of New England, Yankee Notions promises to "please the ear, enrich the mind, and enchant the heart." The duo consists of Jim Douglas on vocals, guitar, and concertina, and Tim Van Egmond on vocals, hammered dulcimer, and limberjack (a small wooden puppet that taps out a rhythm on a paddleboard).
