Kate Carney, in Colonial innkeeper’s costume, invites listeners to interact in telling the action-packed stories in sound and movement and to sing along as if they were in Revolutionary Boston. Listeners hear and take part in these family-friendly tales and discover what it was like to live in those chaotic times.
Her first-hand accounts of the King’s taxes, the Destruction of the Tea (Boston Tea Party), Revere’s Ride and a Ladies’ Food Riot are historically accurate. Listeners realize how New Englanders survived in those chaotic times, and even enjoyed themselves.
