Let this high-energy performance designed for children transport you back in time to experience the rural roots of American music. Rootstone Jug Band evokes a time before radios and recordings, when folk songs were woven into the fabric of rural life. The band, studied in a range of regional styles, presents old-time songs from Virginia alongside material from the classic jug bands and songsters of Memphis, all with a deep respect for the music's origins. These songs are essential ingredients in the American musical recipe, and in the hands and voices of Rootstone Jug Band, they come alive again. Children will be chosen from the audience to create an onstage kazoo orchestra. Each child will receive his or her own kazoo to continue the fun at home!
