Whoa Back Pig!  Songs of Farming and Animals with Judy Cook at Windsor Historical Society



Saturday, November 5th is your last chance to see the Barn Again and Windsor Shade Tobacco exhibitions at Windsor Historical Society and a special closing event is planned.  Adults and children of all ages are invited to join Maryland ballad singer Judy Cook as she presents “Whoa Back Pig!  Songs of Farming and Animals” at 2 p.m. on November 5th.  Why smear sheep with a mixture of tar and rancid butter?  How did a rejected colt become a winning racehorse?  What happens when an old cow tries to sing?  All this and more will be revealed in a program that delights listeners with images and stories in song and plenty of great choruses to sing along. 


Judy Cook is well known in the folk singing world on both sides of the Atlantic.  Singer Lou Killen says, “Judy Cook is one of the finest exponents of ballad singing that the current American folk music revival has produced.  Her depth of understanding and story-telling ability in ballad form is rivaled only by her dedication to the music and her willingness to do her research.  But all that aside – I’d go and listen to her anytime and anywhere.”


The cost is $6 for adults, $5 for senior and students, $15 per family with Windsor Historical Society members admitted at $4 apiece.  Parking is available in the Windsor Discovery Center Parking lot and around Palisado Green.  Refreshments will be served.  Put this event on your calendar:  you can’t help but have a good time!
