PODCAST

MUSIC

 

Below are two songs performed by Dorothea Jensen, mezzo, and Virginia Eskin, pianist, at the New Hampshire State House on Lafayette Day, May 20, 2019.

Dance Music played at the

Perkins Tavern Dance

I asked two friends, Sienna and Sara Larson, to record these dance songs. (Sometime, I play the piano, too.) This are to give you an idea of what Clara heard and danced to at the Perkins Tavern.

Clara's family has a pair of oxen called Humpty and Dumpty that pull plows, wagons, etc. Here is a team of oxen pulling a cart at Old Sturbridge Village.

 

When I was there recently, I asked one of the costumed interpreters there what an ox is, exactly. He told me that it is a steer (castrated bull) that has been trained to pull ploughs, carts, wagons, etc., that is at least 4 years old. Before reaching this age, it is simply regarded as a trained steer.

 

As you can see by this video I took at OSV, oxen are NOT built for speed, but are very strong!
