MASSACHUSETTS-NEW YORK BORDER 'WARS' IN THE 1700S
Tyringham, 10 a.m.
A Bidwell House Museum History Talk at the Tyringham Union Church features Gary Leveille explaining how for decades, starting in the early 1700s, the elusive border between what is now eastern Columbia County, N.Y., and western Berkshire County, Mass., was hotly disputed.  Dutch and English settlers on both sides of the line found themselves immersed in a political and economic struggle between the colonies of New York and Massachusetts. In his presentation, Leveille explores this feud, beginning with the puzzling land acquisitions from Mohican Native Americans known as Spoor’s Grant and the Shawenon Purchase. The border dispute worsened as tenant farmers living in New York’s feudal-like system were encouraged by Massachusetts neighbors to declare allegiance with Massachusetts and become free land owners instead of just renters of their property. Admission is $15.

JOAN OSBORNE SINGS BOB DYLAN
North Adams, 8 p.m.
“Like Bonnie Raitt, a musician to whom she has often been compared, Ms. Obsborne is a fiercely intelligent, no-nonsense singer-songwriter who is allergic to traditional pop sentimentality, though hardly devoid of feeling… She treats Mr. Dylan as fellow troubadour and roustabout, inventing the rules while traveling along an endless road. Mr. Dylan’s songs are so deeply ingrained in the culture, it’s a wonder more singers haven’t devoted entire concerts to his songs.” (The New York Times) We’ll be outside with this beloved talent for a concert of our favorite songs.
