Williamstown: St. John’s to host musical storytellers

Wednesday January 16, 2013

Musical storytellers Charlie King and Karen Brandow will perform at St. John’s Church on Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, presenting a Saturday evening coffee house program and singing at the 10 a.m. parish Eucharist on Sunday.

On Saturday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m. in the church’s lower room, they will present a program, "1912: Occupy Lawrence -- The Great Textile Strike." This performance piece celebrates the 100th anniversary of what became known as the Bread & Roses Strike.

Combining historical narrative, film images and songs from the strike, this 60-minute performance brings alive a landmark event in American labor history.

The evening will include refreshments and a set of songs.

The Lower Room of St. John’s is reached by using the ramp entrance at 35 Park St., down a flight and directly beneath the church. A handicapped entrance is available from the Williams College Faculty House parking lot.

Information: (413) 458-8144.
