An ecclectic selection of 19th Century music including:

  • two songs with lyrics by two of Oregon’s famous suffragists, Abigail Scott Duniway and Eva Emery Dye
  • an advertising jingle for a fish restaurant in Baltimore
  • 3 traditional Irish tunes
  • a song about the wreck of the USS Peacock in the mouth of the Columbia written by one of the survivors (we believe we’re the only people who have this historical song, and we can explain the unusual circumstance about how we came to have it)
  • a song about John Adams being disgruntled about losing his bid for reelection
  • General Taylor’s Gallop (1846) by early black composer Aaron Connor
  • an early ragtime piece

All pieces will be performed with authentic instruments and voice.
