Here is info on a concert I will be performing in with my wife and partner, Maggi.
In addition to banjo, I'll be playing guitar, mandolin and piano. Maggi is a soprano and a guitarist.
If you happen to be in the Salem MA area this Sunday:
"Cold is the Nightwind: A Victorian Christmas Program"
: The Inaugural American History and Music Festival Event
Members of the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) New England States Touring program, Jim and Maggi Dalton have toured nationwide for over two decades. Jim Dalton is on the full-time faculty of The Boston Conservatory and an award-winning composer. Maggi is founding president of the Salem History Society, an award-winning author, and a frequent guest lecturer at The Boston Conservatory.
"Cold is the Nightwind" A Victorian Christmas Concert is a program which was first performed at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Memorial in Hartford, Ct. It features an historical journey across the United States, looking at the ways in which Victorian America celebrated the holiday season in song and first-person accounts -- much of which is drawn from primary sources.
Produced by the nonprofit Institute for Music, History, and Cultural Traditions, in cooperation with Salem Main Streets -- "Holiday Happenings"
