You’ve heard of a Pub Crawl.

You’ll be strolling through a “musical” garden and experiencing a sampler of music performed in America from 1770 to 1970. Concerts will feature music from Thomas Jefferson’s musical library as well as fiddle tunes by American composers. Musicians will also share songs popular during the Civil War, First World War as well as the 1950s and 1960s. To see concert schedule, click on Get Tickets for Music Crawl.
