A Rendezvous of Idlers:  18th Century Farm Event

Charles Woodmason, a clergyman traveling through 18th Century Carolina observed “these Assemblies at Private Houses for Singing… is reprehensible…these Singing Matches lie under the Imputation of being only Rendezvous of Idlers.” Join the Backcountry folk on the 18th Century Farm for an idle afternoon of music, dance, and intrigue from August 1775.
