MACARTHUR UNDER MOONLIGHT CONCERT: MATTHEW SABATELLA - BALLAD OF AMERICA (FOLK)
John D. MacArthur Beach State Park
Date: March 22, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM (Doors open at 6:00 PM)
With vocals, guitar, banjo and a wealth of traditional folk songs, Matthew Sabatella brings the story of the United States vividly to life. Classic American folk songs have a unique power to unite audience members, no matter the age or ethnicity. The songs build community, fostering empathy and understanding among people while providing a vital connection to those who came before. Our cultural heritage is unique and irreplaceable, and Matthew's performance offers a fun and inspiring way to present and preserve it for current and future generations.
Throughout the show, Matthew tells the stories behind the songs, weaving the performance into an engaging narrative that features the music and instruments of colonists, pioneers, sailors, lumberjacks, immigrants, '49ers, farmers, mountaineers, slaves, soldiers, cowboys, railroaders, and activists for social justice. Along the way, audiences enjoy folk songs, fiddle tunes, Old World ballads, work songs, spirituals, love songs, sea shanties, reels, play parties, breakdowns, blues, and more.
