Folk Concert this Sunday!

2016 Folk Concert

We hope you can make it to the second annual Folk Concert of First Parish this Sunday at 3:30 pm in the sanctuary. It’s going to be a great concert, with an ensemble of guitars, fiddle, banjo, string bass, mandolin and other folk instruments accompanying folk duo, John Kirk and Trish Miller, along with the First Parish Sanctuary and Children’s choirs. The musicians will perform music featuring Appalachian fiddle tunes, Irish and Scottish folk tunes, music from the 1960’s, shape-note choral pieces, folk trios and solos, and other Celtic music. Some of the songs, both instrumental and choral, to be featured in the concert are “Ashokan Farewell” (made famous in the Ken Burns documentary, The Civil War), an original shape note setting of “Wayfaring Stranger” and an ancient Celtic lullaby “Enini.”

Directed by Rip Jackson. First Parish is handicapped accessible. Parking is available behind the church on 7 Harrington Road. Suggested Donation $10-$20 (more if you can, less if you can’t). For more information, call the church at 781-862-8200 x4, or visit
