Two women, inspired by mountain ballads, hymns and harmonies, bring songs to life on July 26 with sparse, atmospheric arrangements using guitar, banjo, fiddle, and their uncannily close harmony. “If you’ve never thought your tastes would lean to mountain music, take a deep breath and soak it all in.” – NPR.
We are excited to announce that Hancock Shaker Village is among 85 institutions across Massachusetts participating in the Free Fun Friday initiative, thanks to the generous support of Highland Street Foundation. Admission will be FREE for all visitors, all day on July 21. We look forward to seeing you!
What happens in the Village after the last bell rings? On this after-hours tour, your guide will lead you through the darkening Village where you will hear tales of ghostly sightings, learn about the Shakers’ role in the spiritualist movement, and perhaps catch a few spirit sightings of your own! Do any spirits remain….
