Charles RevsonSaturday, January 21, 2017
11:00 a.m.
Millyard Museum
Included with admission to the museum

Manchester's own Charles Revson started with one bottle of nail polish, and he built an empire - the Revlon Company - that fueled a rags-to-riches story to rival that of "The Great Gatsby."

He had help of course.  His brother, Joseph and Martin, followed him from Manchester to Manhattan, and together - with a little help from a television game show called "The $64,000 Question" - they reshaped the world of cosmetics.

Find out more about the West Side kids from another West Sider - MHA Executive Director John Clayton - when he speaks at the Millyard Museum on January 21st.

Jordan tirrellSaturday, March 25, 2017
1:00 p.m.
Millyard Museum
FREE and open to the public

Through traditional music Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki relays some of the adventures, misadventures, and emotions experienced by Irish emigrants.  The focus is on songs about leaving Ireland, sometimes focusing on the reasons for leaving (a man who is driven from his land by English persecution); sometimes revealing what happened upon arrival (an immigrant drafted into the Union army during the Civil War); and sometimes exploring the universal feeling of homesickness of a stranger in a strange land (a factory worker in London missing his home in County Clare).  The presenter discusses the historical context of these songs, interspersing their stories with tunes from Ireland that made their way into New England's musical repertoire, played on his fiddle or guitar.

Many thanks to New Hampshire Humanities for their generous sponsorship of this program!
