Terrific Tuesdays: Brendan Taaffe's Crankie Concert

Tuesday, June 27, 2017, at 1 p.m. in Heberton Hall

Crankies are magic, a low-tech form of moving pictures that completely captivates any audience. Crankies, for the uninitiated, are scrolling illustrations, wound inside a wooden box and then hand-cranked so that the images move across a viewing screen.

Brendan Taaffe is a musician, storyteller, and crankie maker from Brattleboro. He is a favorite performer at our monthly family contra dances.
