Sounds of the Settlers
MAY 17 & 18, 2014
Recreating the sounds of history.
History books can tell us a lot about the founding of modern America, but there are some things they can’t do. Sine Nomine sets out to explore a question that is rarely asked: What did this world sound like? What sounds were in the air that the early Pilgrims and Puritans breathed?
Celebrating 20 years!
