Here is more about this event:
THE ARMORY BAND. Playing on instruments that are restorations and replicas from the Civil War era, the band performs as a tribute to all those musicians serving in, or for, both armies of this country during the Civil War. Their uniforms and other equipment complete the authentic impression of the era. Rich with sounds of instrument and voice, the band combines music and history to tell stories, many long forgotten, about the American Civil War.
This is a Civil War era music revue performed by brass and string bands, vocalists, dancers, with Abraham Lincoln and Jenny Lind impressions. The music is traditional, opera, camp and regimental.
For those of you that joined my husband and I at the Pirate Dance in Romoland last Saturday just want you to know that Logan, Ezra and Landon Creighton will be participating in the dance along with others you may know… Monique and Charlotte Wright, Megan Roth, Dana Cash, and Spencer Watson.
