"A History of American Women in Song" with Linda Russell

A musical illumination of the role of women’s lives in society from the 18th century to the 19th Amendment, by which women were given the right to vote. Linda sings broadsides, laments, murder ballads, love songs, parlor melodies, and suffrage anthems that reflect the changing status of women in society. For 30 years, balladeer Linda Russell has explored America's past through song. She served as 18th century balladeer at Federal Hall National Memorial in NYC. Now, her performances are in demand at historic sites, schools and community centers around the country. She has recorded eight albums of traditional and historical music.
