Barrington Preservation Society and Barrington Public Library invite you to enjoy an afternoon performance by The Vox Hunters.
Self-proclaimed seekers and singers of old songs, cultivators of local music, and chronic multi-instrumentalists, Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi better known as The Vox Hunters, will perform old folk music with Rhode Island roots. For the past few years, their focus has been to uncover and revive a part of Rhode Island's musical heritage and bring old Ocean State songs and tunes back into public consciousness.
Through ongoing local research, The Vox Hunters have been unearthing and revitalizing forgotten fragments of Rhode Island's musical heritage. Having recently published their first collection of Rhode Island folk songs, The Ocean State Songster: Volume I, they have a wealth of unique material that offers a window into Bristol County's past through historic songs, tunes, and local lore. What can one expect to hear? Revolutionary war songs, tales of a long-forgotten murder, Warren's godly visitation by Poseidon himself, and even a century-old plea for better roads. In the casual atmosphere they're known to create, you can't help but sing along!
Free and open to all
