Aug 20: Our Queer Elders with Katie Castagno


Sunday, August 20, 2023

Please join us as we welcome Katie Castagno, a geologist by day and a musician by night. Drawing on roots in rural New England and collegiate a cappella, Katie writes about people, places, and geological phenomena. Our Queer Elders is a project documenting in song the lives of queer women throughout history. Whether it’s an account of Rachel Carson’s whirlwind romance with Dorothy Freeman, a sweet love song about Mary Oliver, or a campy ditty about the first women to hike Vermont’s Long Trail, Katie will share stories and songs with warm melodies and quick wit. Come join and learn more about our queer elders.

Live at the Chapel and on Zoom. Zoom link below:

Katie Castagno lives in Eastham and recently released an album, Every House I’ve Known, about what it means to call a place home. When not making music, Katie is the director of the Land-Sea Interaction Program at the Center for Coastal Studies and spends most of the time in the salt marsh.

Learn more at 10am on Sunday, August 20 at the Chapel in the Pines in Eastham. Doors open at 9:30.
