Todd and Bill Provide Endless Amusement
Sat, August 3, 4:30pm – 5:45pm
Todd Johnson, Bill Higgins
Endless Amusement is a book, published in 1820, containing 400 scientific demonstrations, experiments, tricks, and projects for young readers. Join Todd Johnson and Bill Higgins for Regency-era fun, as they try out a couple of the saner suggestions. Merely discussed will be the ones our hotel would not allow (plenty of recipes for fireworks) and the ones that are rather dangerous ("DISSOLVE 100 grains of mercury by heat, in an ounce and a half of nitric acid...")
Sun, August 4, 9:00 am – 10:15 am
Lisa Golladay, Michael Blake, Bill Higgins, Bryan Peterson
Four strings and the truth. Bring a uke, borrow a uke, teach a song or learn some new ones. Absolute beginners welcome; also blazing hipsters, guitarists who seek the light, and those of us for whom vaudeville never died (you know who you are).
(Yes, Lisa, I know who I am.)
