A concert called “Pilgrim’s Progress” by Boston-based Seven Times Salt. The group brings history to life through music and diary texts read in 17th-century English. This concert is presented in honor of the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing in New England. The Pilgrims brought with them music from the tavern to the royal court, including English psalms, catches, ballads, dance tunes, Dutch divisions, and John Playford’s “English Dancing Master.” English country dancing will be included in the performance. Amherst Early Music is excited to present this concert in New London, with its rich maritime history.
