Exhibit Opening: Traditional Dance and Music in the Monadnock Region 1750-2015

The Monadnock Center for History and Culture and the Monadnock Folklore Society jointly present an exhibit that will open on January 24th, 2015 and run through mid-May.

The exhibit demonstrates that traditional dance and music, primarily contra and square dance, have been part of the regular lives of residents of the Monadnock region in southwestern New Hampshire since the time of the Colonial settlements in the mid-1700s. The exhibit explores the living history of traditional dance and music through audio, newspaper articles, musical instruments, and books, as well as a series of public events.
