Uncle Billy’s Balladeers had their first performance in the historic Gallupville House at the Preservation of Union Festival in 2007. Since that performance, founder Richard Sherman (A.K.A. Percy Leroy) has worked with many other musicians, thespians and historians to make Uncle Billy’s Balladeers a unique interactive experience. The Balladeers offer an array of programs ranging from theatrical productions of historic events to their most popular program entitled Civil War Camp Music.
The Balladeers use words and lyrics to provide the audience with a window into the thinking of our ancestors during the Civil War. They have performed at many local events and historical societies around upstate New York and environs. Lyrics for all songs will be provided so participants can immerse themselves in the experience of a time that is really not so long ago.
