The Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls has announced the return of its Folklife After Hours Series with Songs Celebrating 100 Years of Votes for Women by Tisha Dolton, set for Monday, March 29th.
Tisha Dolton will present a concert of songs relating to the Women’s Suffrage Movement to compliment the exhibition, Equali-tea: Suffragist Tea Cozies in Redwork, A Suffrage Centennial Exhibition. This concert was filmed and edited by librarian Kevin Rogan and will be presented as a Zoom watch party followed by a Q&A with the singer.
Dolton is a singer, historian, librarian, and embroiderer whose research focus lies in the music, art, craft, and theater of the women’s suffrage movement. She also uses local newspapers to unearth forgotten suffragists in Warren, Washington, and Saratoga counties.
In 2020 she received an Individual Artist Grant from Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council to create 42 embroidered portraits of New York State suffragists and provide community programming to compliment the exhibition currently online.
This program will begin at 6:30 pm and is free and open to the public. To join the Zoom conference click here, and use meeting ID 879 0738 1931 / passcode: 180556. This and other concerts can be viewed on The Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library’s YouTube channel.
