Coffee & Culture 'The Moon Shines Bright, And The Stars Give Light' - The Heart's Delight - Islington Christmas Carols If you grew up in Heart's Delight - Islington, your Christmas memories might include waking up late at night to the sound of community men reverently singing two ancient carols, passed down for over a century, in the darkened porch of your home. Other communities in the area, such as Cavendish and Green's Harbour, also once practiced a version of this house-to-house caroling, but today the tradition remains strongest in Heart's Delight-Islington. Join folklorist Dale Jarvis in conversation with the local tradition bearers who are working, and singing, to keep this old Christmas custom shining bright. In partnership with the Mummers Festival Event ASL/English Interpreting Services are available through NLAD by request only to or 709-757-8090. We will do our best to accommodate requests made within two weeks of the scheduled event. Photo courtesy of Geraldine Legge.
