Backintyme makes history come alive. We don period dress to perform stories and songs of the 19th century. Each performance piece consists of an anecdote drawn from historical research, interwoven with a related song of the time. The stories tell what folks did and thought back then — their acts and ideas. They form the source of our knowledge of the past. The songs reveal what they felt — their emotions. They weave the fabric of our understanding.
