Program description: Join Cathy McGrath in this highly ACTIVE program of singing games and cherished songs that relate to story books. This program creates exuberant, wholesome fun! The audience members get tootled by a flute, act out multicultural singing games, sing a fun song about borrowing books from the library, play drums and GIGGLE at the dancing limberjack toys. Everyone will clap, sing and dance in a celebration of creative movement, self expression, and friendly cooperation. This program was created especially for the SUMMER READING PROGRAM and ties into the theme of the year. An experienced folk music performer and family literacy teacher, with a specialty in traditional American singing games, Cathy uses guitar, banjo, limberjack puppets, flute, penny whistle and children’s drums in her programs which are tailored for specific age groups. One parent’s response: You can’t help but dance! Another response: As we sang, danced, and clapped our way through a variety of folk music, Cathy's energy and enthusiasm were contagious. What a wonderful way to introduce singing games and our cultural heritage to children. We can't wait to have her back again! ( Sarah Matthews Children's Librarian Wadsworth Library, Geneseo, NY).
Space/special requirements: A large space is needed to play traditional dancing games. Cathy provides a sound system, IF needed. A small table and electrical outlet would be required for the sound. Water is appreciated!
