The inaugural two-day event will feature its own arts festival, a music festival, and three barbecue competitions. “Barbecue is very American. That's why people enjoy it so much.

Apryll Walker wanted to be mom. Her husband, Brett, wanted to be an inventor. But they both shared a love of music that they couldn't ignore and now it's a family passion. For about a half-dozen years, the Walkers and their seven children have been traveling the United States, keeping hands clapping and toes tapping to the sounds of country, bluegrass and old-time mountain music. It wasn't the kind of life the couple pictured for themselves when they married and began a life together in Alaska.

The Maryland Humanities Council will present David Hildebrand in a concert of “Music of the War of 1812 in America,” Sunday, May 19, at 4 p.m. in St. Mark's Fellowship Center, 18313 Lappans Road, Boonsboro.  The War of 1812 spawned a huge variety of songs in America. From the early stirrings of party politics under President Adams, the traumatic effect of Jefferson's Embargo in 1807, the triumph at Fort McHenry to the last battle in New Orleans, Americans took pen to paper to tear at political opponents, to dramatize the great sea battles between huge frigates in full sail and to laud battle heroes like Hull and Perry.
