    A Brief History of Old Newbury: Settlement to Separation
    When

    Description

    kidnappings, earthquakes and a plague of caterpillars. The century that followed—marked by religious conflict, Indian uprisings and public scandal— proved no less challenging to the early Puritan community. In 1640, Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop noted, “As people increased, so sin abounded.” Through the turmoil, Newbury's citizens harnessed the region's abundant natural resources and developed a thriving community. 

    Author and local historian Bethany Groff Dorau introduces the compelling personalities that shaped the history of Old Newbury from its founding in 1635 until 1764, when Newburyport received its independence from the mother town. From the scandalous exploits of Dr. Henry Greenland to the courageous and sacrificing acts of founding families like the Emerys, Dummers and Pikes, A Brief History of Old Newbury provides a captivating glimpse into the verve of this early New England town. 

    As this talk is expected to possibly exceed our room capacity, we will be handing out free tickets starting at 6:30 pm. Get here early for a fun and informative evening!

    The Sweetback Sisters

    A concert fundraiser presented by Christmas Tree Santas
    A Christmas Sing-Along with honeysweet voices backed by a rollicking roadhouse band!

    Christmas caroling has never been this much fun! The Sweetback Sisters, as heard on NPR and A Prairie Home Companion, add their honeysweet voices, backed by their rollicking roadhouse band, to a wide-ranging program of holiday music for their annual Country Christmas Sing-Along Spectacular.

    With a set list that includes timeless Christmas carols and contemporary classics, like “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” the Sisters raucously rev up some seasonal favorites and reverently harmonize on others. Lyric sheets for the audience let everyone join in the fun. It’s a show the Boston Globe calls “festive… the perfect balance of sass, sincerity and swing.”

    Lead vocalists Emily Miller and Zara Bode aren’t, in fact, blood relatives, but their tightly-knit harmonies recall some of music’s most memorable family duos, like the Everlys and the Judds. Their joyous Christmas show started four years ago as a bit of a lark for a few friends and loyal fans, but a CD of holiday music soon followed, and their seasonal sing-alongs are now an annual touring tradition for the band.

    Outside of their Christmas gigs, the Sisters play a brand of country swing and honky-tonk that is as infectious as it is heartbreaking. The band has toured extensively throughout the U.S., including a 2012 showcase appearance at the South by Southwest Music Festival (SXSW), and has five critically-acclaimed releases on the Signature Sounds label of Northampton, MA.

    Proceeds from the show benefit the Christmas Tree Santas, a local non-profit that spreads hope and joy by giving away Christmas trees to needy families.
