18 Thu Jul

10:30 am - 12 pmAdd to Google | iCal

Using story and song, celebrated musician and folklorist Russ Childers shares memories of his family’s Eastern Kentucky farm life. Children learn the trials and joys of Appalachian living over the past two hundred years. Focus is on the positive contributions of Appalachian culture as transferred through the artist’s traditional music and storytelling. Appalachian survival depends on learning to use what is at hand and instills creativity and resourcefulness in its citizenry, along with a firm emphasis on family values. Children learn to celebrate their own creativity through singing and rhythm exercises with the performer. Featured instruments are the banjo, fiddle, lap dulcimer, guitar, and various homemade/recycled instruments. Storytelling includes traditional Jack tales, tall tales, and personal anecdotes.
