Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

In the 18th century, taverns were where you'd go for news, dancing, a filling meal, entertainment, civic meetings, advertising, auctioning, and of course, for your favorite libation. As for music, you and your friends would provide your own, though most taverns kept a few 'house instruments' - fiddles, guitars, flutes and the like - to encourage impromptu concerts and dances. The Colonial Revelers perform a capella music popular in 18th Century America. They donate monies received beyond their basic expenses to local musical arts organizations. Together since 2000, they have appeared in costume as part of celebrations at Valley Forge National Historical Park, Brandywine Battlefield Park, Elfreth's Alley in Philadelphia, and Cedar Bridge Heritage Festival in Manahawkin, NJ, among others.
