Ballads & Brews 2024
Join us in our 18th-century tavern to sample historic drinks and treats and learn about early Fredericksburg’s connections to Ireland and Scotland. Sing along with Kinda Celtic as they perform authentic drinking songs that patrons sang in taverns of old!
The colonists of Virginia, including early Fredericksburg, came from many places, but those who came from Ireland and Scotland left an indelible mark on the culture and events of the 18th-century. At this year's Ballads & Brews event, we'll raise a toast to these immigrants and to the Gaelic music and traditions that influenced our area. Join us in our 18th-century tavern to sample historic drinks and treats inspired by this period, including whiskey punch and Irish ale. We will sing along together as Kinda Celtic performs authentic drinking songs that patrons sang right here in Fredericksburg!
