Looks likes a good afternoon of musical history along with some Newton history this Sunday, Jan 11, 4 PM at the Durant-Kenrick House. For years, Historic Newton was based solely at the Jackson Homestead Museum. A few years ago they added a 2nd historic property, the Durant-Kenrick House on Waverly Ave. If you’ve never been there, it’s worth a trip, especially if there’s some good music involved.
Martin Grosswendt is well known for his masterful interpretation of early blues and Southern traditional music. Susanne Salem-Schatz is a life-long singer with experience across classical, gospel, folk, and roots country music. As an acoustic duo, they survey the landscape of American roots music and will feature a variety of blues, jazz standards and southern roots music of the 20’s and 30’s. Tickets are $15 and include admission to the museum, $10 for seniors, students, and members – come early to tour the museum! At the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds, 286 Waverley Avenue.
