The Museum of Our Industrial Heritage will host its annual Summer Celebration on Sunday July 6, from 1 – 4 pm.
Fiddle entertainment under the tent will be led by renowned western Massachusetts fiddler Donna Hébert. The program features Celtic aires and walzes from Quebec, performed by Hébert’s trio Mist Covered Mountains. In a line up of acoustic entertainment for the whole family, fiddle students will take the stage, and there will be a fiddle jam for all comers.
Visitors can take a guided walk along the Green River to the Wiley-Russell dam, and visit the museum’s new exhibit for 2014, “Rags to Riches,” the story of Franklin County’s Paper Industry. Enjoy demonstrations and try hands-on activities, including paper-making. Refreshments will be served. Rain or shine. Admission is free.
This program is supported in part by grants from the local cultural councils of Bernardston, Buckland, Greenfield, Heath, Leyden, Orange, Wendell, and Whately, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Thank you!
