Festival brings to life the customs and spirit of the Middle Ages.
Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park is transformed into a medieval market town
decorated with bright banners and processional flags. Performers,
guests and festival goers dress in medieval costume. Visitors are
greeted by authentic medieval music, dance, magic, and minstrels, as
well as jugglers and jesters. The afternoon is concluded with a
thrilling joust between four knights on horseback. Costumed vendors
will be on hand to demonstrate and sell a wide variety of medieval
crafts as well as food and drink.
Representing the club, Double Trouble (Jean Farnworth & Evy Mayer), suitably attired in medieval garb, will perform at the Riverside Music Niche at noon and 3:00 pm.

|Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner have played together for many years, traveled and toured extensively, and performed in concerts at folk clubs and festivals around the world, and recorded many times.
Terry's voice is a truly impressive instrument and she is also an excellent player of the harmonica, mandolin, fretted dulcimer, and rhythm guitar. Greg is an outstanding guitarist whose fingerstyle approach owes a lot to his heroes, guitar legends such as Reverend Gary Davis, Big Bill Broonzy, Nick Lucas, Phil Ochs, and Rolly Brown. His playing is the solid basis of Magpie's sound, providing whatever is called for, whether it be a hard-driving rhythm, or a ringing lyrical beauty. From a slow Scots air or a plaintive ballad to a rollicking ragtime blues or infectious swing, Greg covers it all. His high baritone voice has equal range and his captivating interpretation gives power and beauty to the full spectrum, from growling blues, to a Chilean lament, to a sweet croon. This is a Daniel Pearl World Music Days event.
At OSA Hall, 220 E 23rd St, Suite 707 (between 2nd & 3rd Aves, Manhattan).Admission: general public $22; members of FMSNY and PMN $18; full-time students and those under 17 $10.
|Greg Artzner & Terry Leonino, known together as Magpie, will present a two-hour educational workshop using songs to explore this important era in American history. Unlike many Civil War programs, the focus will specifically be on the movement for African-American liberation. Some of the songs they sing will likely be familiar, while others might be ones you have never heard before. All will be done with the power, passion, intelligence, and grace that are Magpie's hallmark. This is a Daniel Pearl World Music Days event.
