This year we’re reaching out to the Kidz in our community with a new school program. Our mission – to bring the fun of Bluegrass music to everyone young, and young at heart!
This year we are reaching out to our local primary and junior grade schools and bringing Bluegrass to the Kidz. Each presentation will include:
- An educational overview of the history of Bluegrass music and a demonstration of the bluegrass instruments. This will be an interactive presentation with lots of live bluegrass music featuring the various styles from traditional to contemporary.
- There will be prize giveaways and kidz who sign up for a vocal workshop will have the opportunity to get up and sing along with the band.
