She Called Him Adonijah – Online Concert with Diane Taraz
June 27, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
A live stream concert with Diane Taraz
Join the Museum at 7 pm on Saturday June 27th for a live stream concert of She Called Him Adonijah with beloved local musician Diane Taraz.
Through a selection of 18th century folk songs that tell us much about life in Britain’s American colonies, Diane explores the world in which little Adonijah Bidwell grew up, and his eventful life as a teacher, shipboard chaplain, husband of three, father of four and minister of Township No. 1. Diane wears the clothing of the time and accompanies her singing on an instrument similar to the now-extinct English guitar played by Colonial ladies.
A Pittsfield native, Diane has long made her home in the Boston area, performing extensively throughout New England. She is the director of the Lexington Historical Society Colonial Singers and a longtime member of the Gloucester Hornpipe & Clog Society, a traditional band that plays maritime, Celtic, and Colonial music. She also sings with Vox Lucens, a 12-member a cappella Renaissance choir, and the UUlations, a women’s a cappella group. Her recordings are available through her website at www.dianetaraz.com.
This FREE concert will be performed via Zoom. All attendees must register in advance and will receive a link to the live stream a few days before the concert.
