A ‘backyard opera’ giving a nostalgic view of American folksongs and customs. Woven through dialogue of a "typical" family of the period as they gather for their reunion are well known folksongs and hymns such as Go Tell Aunt Rhody, Work for the Night is Coming, Welcome Table, Billy Boy, Sally Goodin, Weevily Wheat and Father's Got a Home. This is music to share with your family.
Presented here by the Musicians of Melodious Accord and Alice Parker with the Young People's Chorus of New York City.
