Music of the war years
Last year, writer Bill Flynn was presenting a lecture about his book, “A Drumbeat Too Near: Cape Cod WW II,” at the Eastham Historical Society’s 1869 Schoolhouse Museum.
The program wasn’t all pictures and history, however. In fact, Flynn actually burst into song, bringing back a few of the best-loved tunes from the war years.
“I sang a few songs and it went over really well,” Flynn said. “People really joined in and related to it, because I think they heard them when they were kids and or their parents knew them.”
Flynn will return to the Schoolhouse Museum on Oct. 20 for a “Songfest,” featuring more of the songs from the World War II era. The audience is invited to sing along, while images and lyrics grace the screen.
