Seashore Program to Present Cape History Through Music

EASTHAM – A one-hour musical event next month will present a historical look at the natural wonders of Cape Cod.

The Cape Cod National Seashore welcomes balladeer Linda Russell to the recently renovated outdoor amphitheater at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham on August 10.

Russell’s program will explore the impact of settlement and the relationship between people and the land as revealed in traditional folksongs and popular tunes of the past.

She will perform on hammered and mountain dulcimers, guitar and penny whistle to bring to life ballads, broadsides, love songs and dance tunes of the nation’s past.

Russell served for many years as a balladeer for the National Park Service at Federal Hall National Memorial in New York City and she now takes her music to historic sites, schools and festivals across the country.

The program is part of the summer “Salt Pond Evenings” series, which is held weekly in July and August at 7 p.m.

The events focus on the diverse natural and cultural resources on the Outer Cape and are suitable for all ages. They are also free and accessible for all.
