A Brave Barrel of Oysters: Music of Samuel Pepys' London
8:00pm
Beacon Hill Friends House, 6 Chestnut St. Boston, MA
$15 suggested donation

with Michael Barrett, tenor
featuring Kyle Parrish as Samuel Pepys and Anney Barrett as Mrs. Knipp

Celebrate Samuel Pepys' 380th birthday in style! Perhaps the English language's most famous diarist, Pepys was a prosperous civil servant and "man-about-town" in Restoration London, and the diaries that he kept fastidiously from 1660-1668 provide a revealing glimpse into the life of a middle-class bon vivant under the reign of the "merry monarch" Charles II. Pepys was an enthusiastic amateur musician who sang and played the lute, viol, and flageolet; his diaries chronicle (among other adventures) his experiences making convivial music with both the best and the worst musicians that London had to offer. Playing on the very instruments that Pepys favored, Seven Times Salt brings Pepys' bustling, bewigged, and sometimes bawdy London to life with dramatic readings from the diaries and selections by Hume, Humfrey, Blagrave, Young, and Locke (all of whom were friends of Pepys).
