Don’t miss a rare opportunity to hear Brent Bunker perform on two of his antique instruments, the harp guitar and hammered dulcimer, at the annual holiday open house for the Lincoln County Historical Society Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Burrows House Museum, Log Cabin Museum, and Carriage House, 545 SW Ninth St., Newport.
The event is free and features refreshments and entertainment, including, in addition to Bunker: Lost in Time, a recorder consort; a quilters’ demonstration; classic model train, free gift basket raffle, children’s activities, and a visit from Santa Claus. The buildings will be decorated for a traditional Christmas, and a panel display will feature Christmas cards and other items from the Society’s collection.
Refreshments include favorite sweets, many of them homemade, as well as nuts, crackers and cheese, punch, coffee, and tea.
“We invite everyone who enjoys a traditional holiday to drop in during our open house,” Steve Wyatt, executive director of the Society, said. “While you’re here, check out our shops for unusual gift items for Christmas.”
