The boys pretend to act horrified that the girls are daring to show their elbows in public.

The Sperreng and Truman Colonial Fiddlers spent a weekend last month in West Lafayette, Indiana, performing at the Feast of the Hunter’s Moon, a re-creation of the annual fall gathering of the French and Native Americans at Fort Ouiatenon, a fur-trading outpost in the mid-1700s. It is held annually in early autumn on the banks of the Wabash River.
