Band of Steady Habits
The acoustic Band of Steady Habits came together in 2014 to share their love of music, and to use their talents to help create a new kind of public history presentation. Rachel Smith, Teagan Smith, Jeremy Teitelbaum, Walt Woodward, and Duke York use banjo, guitars, violin, recorders, bass, percussion, and beautiful harmonies to perform songs – some old, some original, and some contemporary – to accompany the visually rich and evocative stories of state historian Walt Woodward. The stories provide new insights and perspectives into topics ranging from the Civil War, to the uniqueness of Connecticut, to the poetry of Robert Frost. Band of Steady Habits performances have received rave reviews in venues throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts, and are gaining them fans both for their stories and music.
Then, get your veg on at Connecticut’s Old State House Farmers Market. Nestled on the East brick plaza near the lawn you can peruse some delicious treats from a variety of vendors, listen to some tunes from local musicians, and then you can explore the oddities inside at the Museum of Curiosities. There’s a two headed calf in there, just sayin’.
