sian, west wales Maritime music sessions in Buffalo NY (33) RE: Maritime music sessions in Buffalo NY 28 Jul 10


Ah, Cedar Bay was 'our' beach.

You'd probably enjoy that Port Museum book on the Sugarloaf Settlement; lots of maps of the early settlers' claims and accounts of the to'ing and fro'ing across the border (friendly and otherwise). One interesting factoid was that some of the Mennonites set up whisky stills to supply the militia and army during the 1812-1814 war.

I hear that the USA side of the border is suggesting some joint celebrations come 2012 (dunno why cuz we whupped yer collective butts) so a group doing historical song might have something to work towards ...
