History is so much more than memorizing dates or sorting out the wars between nations. At At the Heritage Village at Big Creek we often focus on history, but we are more interested in the lives of the people–how they lived, what they believed, what they cared about. To learn that kind of history… to really learn about the our ancestors and people of other countries, one can sometimes learn more from music than from a history textbook.
For that reason, on Sunday, September 16 at 2:00 Crossroads and the Door County Historical Society are delighted to host the a concert of group Global Achord. This ensemble of local folk musicians frequently changes personnel, and consequently, instrumentation, but as their clever name suggests, but they always present an eclectic selection of world music. This concert is made possible by a grant from the MMG Foundation.
Weather permitting, we hope to hold the folk music event in the rock garden outside the Collins Learning Center. But like Goldilocks, we prefer conditions for an outdoor concert to be just right. So if it is too hot or too cold or so windy the music won’t stay put on music stands, the concert will be held in the climate-controled comfort of the Collins Learning Center. This concert is made possible by a grant from the MMG Foundation.
Village visitors also will want to bring a little cash Sunday afternoon because the Door County Historical Society will be holding a “Craft and Produce” Market as a part of their Sunday in the Village series. More than 20 booths will be set up in The Historical Village at The Crossroads, so as in town markets of yesteryear, visitors can shop local from 1:00-5:00 and explore the historic buildings as well.
Shoppers/concert-goers are encouraged to bring folding chairs, blankets or cushions if they prefer not to sit on the rocks. (After all, this is not a rock concert. It’s folk music.)
