Join Seven Times Salt for a musical bash in honor of William Shakespeare's 450th birthday! We'll present some of the songs he mentions by name as well as a range of works by his musical contemporaries. You'll also hear choice excerpts from his plays read by Seven Times Salt's finest thespians. Works by Morley, Ferrabosco, Dowland, and Robert Johnson, dances from the Elizabethan and Jacobean courts, and a saucy ballad or two. Reception to follow.
