BELLOWS FALLS: Stone Church Arts presents Vermont history through song in this special concert of living history.

Linda Radtke, joined by pianist Arthur Zorn, brings Vermont history to life with engaging commentary about the songs found in the Vermont Historical Society’s collection of sheet music.

Dressed in period costume and using the music Vermonters published and sang in their communities, Radtke guides listeners through the state’s history, from the earliest published song, “Green Mountain Farmer” (1798), through 1850 temperance ballads and Civil War era songs, to songs about Vermonters Calvin Coolidge, Thomas Dewey, and Jim Fisk.

The concert will take place on Saturday, February 24, at 7:30 pm in the Chapel at Immanuel Episcopal Church, the stone church on the hill, 20 Church Street. Admission is free. A free-will offering basket will be available at the door. Visit www.stonechurcharts.org or call (802) 460-0110.
