All Hallow's Eve Registration
October 16, 2:00—3:00 pm
Balladeers Ridley and Anne Enslow will perform an All Hallow’s Eve concert at the Bouman-Stickney Farmstead. In addition to singing, Ridley will be on the violin and Ann on the hammered dulcimer. They will trace the legends, beliefs, and superstitions about Halloween beginning in medieval times through the 18th century and beyond. Halloween as we know it today did not exist before the 1870s. But the roots of Halloween reach back centuries into our past—to All Hallow’s Eve and ancient holidays and rituals, superstitions, and folklore. Anne and Ridley Enslow bring these ancient mysteries to life with a program of music spanning several centuries. UPDATE: The program will be held inside the Wade-Wycoff barn. Chairs will be provided.
This program will be held inside the Historic Wade-Wycoff Barn at the Bouman-Stickney Farmstead, in the Stanton section of Readington Township, GPS address: 114 Dreahook Road, Lebanon NJ. The program is free, but donations are appreciated, and reservations are highly recommended.
