This is a wonderful storytelling performance for African-American History Month as well as all year round! Multiple Parents’ Choice Award winning storyteller Robbi K's spirit is clearly contagious, and the entire audience is soon singing and clapping along with the telling of how the turtle got its shell. Movement, singing and chanting set the scene for Robbi to unfold this amusing traditional tale of a little turtle who outwits the fierce leopard and is rewarded with a shell. Robbi moves about constantly, appealing to the audience as she acts out the many characters. This program can also include an African percussionist, budget permitting.

LaRue, Michele The Bedquilt Literature- Creative Writing,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Visual Arts- Crafts
=She never knew how her great idea came to her . . . so beautifully difficult a pattern could be only for the angels in heaven to quilt.= In 1906 Dorothy Canfield Fisher published THE BEDQUILT, her paean to the quilter’s craft—and to the indomitability of woman’s spirit. In her vibrant performance, professional actress Michèle LaRue brings this forgotten story to life. THE BEDQUILT’s unlikely heroine, a downtrodden, elderly spinster, is taken for granted by her New England family. Although unskilled, Aunt Mehetabel is =clever in the way of patching bedquilts.= The suspenseful story reveals her journey to admiration and self respect through her art, as over five years she painstakingly devotes herself to the realization of her ideal. THE BEDQUILT harkens back to a time when literature was written for the ear, and Fisher’s evocative prose gives Michèle ample opportunity to enthrall. In her honest and energetic performance, she embodies eight distinct characters, using Down Eastern dialect to recreate a lost era. =I was enchanted by the story and your delivery, and warmed by the audience's joyful response to a well-told tale, told well.= Artistic Director, Metropolitan Playhouse, NYC

Handy, Spook Songs of the Great Depression and Today History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
When the Great Depression hit, a whole new genre of American folk music was born. Songs about the Dust Bowl, the Great Migration, bread lines and soup kitchens, the New Deal and times of triumph and struggle circulated throughout labor camps, churches and family gatherings. These songs depicted down-to-earth everyday realities of the American laborer and farmer, the hungry and the industrious, centuries old traditions and the transition to a new modern society. It can be surprising how many of these old songs speak of challenges we face today and how new songs written about today's America can so resemble the songs of the Great Depression. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.
