Join Seven Times Salt for a Bonfire Night concert! The Plimoth colonists, or “Pilgrims” as they were later called, were a diverse group of Separatists and Anglicans, religious zealots and irreverent opportunists. They brought with them music experiences as varied as their reasons for coming to the New World, and the Plimoth Colony heard not just solemn English psalms, but also catches, ballads, and dance tunes, to which we add instrumental music of the English court and countryside.
We’ll mark Guy Fawkes Night and celebrate our brand-new CD with music of Morley, Peerson and Ravenscroft, autumnal tunes for harvest time, plus a ballad about the ill-fated Gunpowder Plot, celebrated as “Pope Night” in early New England.
