BELFAST, Maine — ‚ÄúFolk Instruments of Britain‚ÄĚ will be the topic at the Belfast Historical Society meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, July 25, at the Belfast Free Library in the Abbott Room.
Tom Seymour, local musician, author and naturalist, will present a musical performance and discussion using traditional instruments of the British Isles. He will play and explain the history of the Uilleann (Irish) pipes, penny whistle, and pipe and tabor. Belfast was settled by Scots-Irish families in 1770; they most likely carried the old tunes and musical instruments with them to their new home.
Belfast Historical Society programs, which are free and open to the public, are held every fourth Monday of the month, April through October.
