Experience living history as Valerie Davis completely captures the essence of Martha Ann Fields. Through her portrayal, Davis relates the heartbreaking story of Fields having to witness her 12-year-old daughter Louisa being sold on the auction block. Listen to her tell of her harrowing escape with 8 children from the Nutshell Plantation in Hanover County in 1862. Following an arduous journey, Fields achieves sanctuary at Fort Monroe as a free woman raising her children and placing a strong emphasis on education as the key to their success. After the Civil War Martha’s family is reunited, including the daughter and two sons that were sold into slavery. Fields' story shows not only the brutality of slavery, but illuminates also the triumph of those who overcame extreme adversity.

World War II shaped Matt Matthews even though he was born 20 years after it ended. As a kid growing up in Hampton, he was afraid he’d have to do what his father did in the 106th Infantry Division in the Battle of the Bulge. As a young adult, he was afraid he wouldn’t. If his father’s silence about war and being a POW said it all, what did it say? That silence and Matthews’ efforts to fill in the blanks molded his evolving definition of manhood and his efforts to influence and love his own three sons.
In the summer of 2011, Matthews, his wife and three boys traced his late father’s WWII footsteps, the 1000 or so miles from where he was captured in Germany during the Battle of the Bulge to the Clyde River in Glasgow, near where he and 10,000 other seasick American GIs arrived on the RMS Aquitania. 67 years after his father’s journey, Matthews unwraps spiritual insights about loss, fatherhood and overlooked graces of daily life.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Narissa Bond is known for her deeply moving songs crafted from life and family history. Blessed with a warm soprano, she will feature music from her upcoming CD.
You can hear her idols in her music, from Joni Mitchell’s finely crafted songs, and from Tracy Chapman, a sharp rhythmic and melodic sense. But Narissa is her own woman. She studied classical music and jazz guitar, and there are elements of that in her work, as well as a nod to the blues and a strong connection to contemporary folk.
For this performance Narissa will be joined by bassist David Mills, percussionist Charlton Phaneuf, and Gwen Frederick on guitar, ukulele and vocals.
Beer and wine will be available for purchase from La Bodega Hampton.
