Popular music may have changed a bit over the past three hundred years, or perhaps more than a bit, but the desire to enjoy, share and perform music is a common thread throughout history (as well as the efforts by some to insist that things have gone a bit too far.) The September General Meeting will allow just a glimpse of how and what our colonial forefathers might have enjoyed musically, as the Society welcomes traditional musician and history buff Mark Carroll. In keeping with the occasion of the tricentennial year, Mr. Carroll will perform and talk about some tunes likely to be heard and shared at a social gathering in the year 1713, as well as other highlights of colonial era music.
Following a Navy career, Mr. Carroll has been able to indulge his early love for music of all kinds, but particularly Celtic and early American music. He plays the music of Frances Hopkinson, Turlough O’Carolan and many others including, if we’re lucky, some of the slightly off-color tunes compiled by Thomas D’Urfey in his Wit and Mirth, or Pills to Purge Melancholy. He is a seasoned performer and instructor on the Celtic harp, hammered dulcimer and Uillean pipes. He also has the tin whistle, violin, harpsichord, mandolin, banjo and several other instruments amongst his repertoire, so we can look forward to a varied and entertaining program.

Lately Mr. Carroll has been able to be seen regularly at The City Tavern in Philadelphia, where his music has complemented the Eighteenth Century atmosphere of the restaurant. He also performs regularly throughout the area at venues ranging from concerts to historical reenactments, with his musical expertise stretching from classical to the “country” songs of D’Urfrey mentioned above. Like the harpers of old, Mark brings his music to all sorts of festive occasions. More information and video samples of his work a can be found at www.markcarrollmusic.com.

The General Membership Meeting will be held Wednesday, September 25 at 7:30pm at Greenfield Hall, which will also lend its grandeur and gaiety to the occasion. Please join us for a festive occasion of music shared with old and new friends.
