Chorus Room -- 4:00pm to 4:50pm Sunday April 24 E (Entertainment)
[Show on Grid]
How are women represented in the folk song traditions of the West? Are women a benevolent source of life, a lure of sin, a vessel of romantic and spiritual love, a fountain of black magic, or do women represent a connection to God? This concert and discussion takes 9 songs, and, with each of them, examines the way women’s lives and bodies interact with the folk song tradition of the Western world. Songs include The Blacksmith, Shady Grove, As I Roved Out, Katy Cruel, and more.
