Women's History Month celebrated with Adirondack stories and Music

Women's History Month events

Elizabethtown, N.Y. - Celebrate Women's History Month on March 21 and 22 with a spirited program of stories and music by acclaimed Adirondack singer-songwriter Peggy Lynn and author/performer Sandra Weber.

On Friday, March 21 at 7:00pm Peggy and Sandra perform at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall. On Saturday, March 22 at 6:30pm at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts there is a reception to benefit the Adirondack History Center Museum followed by a performance at 7:30pm. Wild Spirits: Songs and Stories of Remarkable Adirondack Women program brings to life the contributions and journeys of famous (and not so well-known) women of the Adirondacks Mountains. 

Sandra and Peggy have developed the program to tell the stories of women’s significant contributions to Adirondack communities and their heritage. They bring to their program extensive performing/ lecturing experience along with their infectious enthusiasm for the songs and stories. In 2004, Sandra and Peggy wrote a book called Breaking Trail: Remarkable Women of the Adirondacks to tell the stories of women from across time, across the region, and with widely varied interests and achievements. Sandra and Peggy have developed the program in conjunction with their book. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the book and program, they are working on Breaking Trail, Volume 2.
