Westborough – The Westborough Historical Society and the Willows will feature acclaimed local songwriter, singer, and guitarist Luanne Crosby Monday, May 20, at 7 p.m., in a program at the Willows, 1 Lyman St., Westborough. Crosby will reach back to her folk roots and play a selection of songs from and about the Civil War era.

During the Civil War period, some of the most popular songs were sung people from the North and South alike.  Many were sentimental and romantic, and many more were patriotic and spoke of love for country and the willingness to die for the cause. You may be surprised at how many melodies you will find familiar, even if you don’t know the background of the composition – proof that music is a historical reference that is part of all of us, even if we are not conscious of it.

The concert is sponsored in part by a grant from the Westborough Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
