Yankee Notions

For more than three decades, Yankee Notions has been performing traditional and contemporary music of New England in schools, libraries, folk festivals, and community venues. Combining compelling vocals with dynamic instrumentals (hammered dulcimer, guitar, concertina, mountain dulcimer, harmonica, and tin whistle), Jim Douglas and Tim Van Egmond present an engaging mix of New England songs of the land and sea with Irish and French Canadian dance tunes for all ages. All performances are guaranteed to please the ear, improve the mind, and expand the heart!
