Welcome to Early American Music and Arts.  We are dedicated to preserving many of the arts and skills that helped define pre-industrial American culture.  From performing music on the harpsichord and violin that Washington enjoyed to offering hands-on demonstrations of how everyday people used tools to make roofing shingles or embroider clothes, we present the ingenuity of yesteryear.  Please explore our site to learn more about our many offerings, and feel free to contact us regarding booking a program.
