“Over The River and Through the Woods” is a delectable peek into Thanksgiving and Christmas traditions of 19th-century America with songs and stories of the period. It will be presented at the Wilton Historical Society on Saturday, Nov. 27 from 2 to 3 pm in the 1860 Abbott Barn. The program also features children’s songs enjoyed by youngsters of the 1800s and bound to delight kids of today.

Presented by Thomas Hooker Hanford, “Over the River and Through the Woods” begins with a rousing rendition of the title song which was composed by Lydia Maria Child, a writer and advocate of the rights of Native Americans, African Americans, and women. Wearing a mid-19th century costume and accompanying his singing with parlor guitar, fiddle and harmonica, Mr. Hanford engages the audience with sing-along choruses and other participation.

For over 25 years Mr. Hanford has been featured at schools, libraries, festivals, and historic sites and events. He has performed several times at the Wilton Historical Society.

Masks are required and tickets cost $10 per person. Online registration and payment are required.
