On Sunday, July 14, Monocacy National Battlefield will host a free performance by the folk musical group Ampersand at the park's visitor center. The outdoor concert, scheduled from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., offers the public a unique opportunity to enjoy songs and tunes from the Civil War era performed in a beautiful landscape that has changed little since the 19th century. Ampersand interprets music from the folk and old-time American traditions on modern instruments with treasured songs and lively instrumentals. The group features Dick Hogle, Beth Lawton, and Francis Lindop playing a selection of songs from both Northern and Southern traditions.
