Durst, James Work o' the Weavers/Celebrating America's Pioneering Folk Quartet History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Beginning in 1950 with their 2-sided hit single, Tzena Tzena & Goodnight Irene, the Weavers ignited popular interest in folk music. With a freshness and exuberance never before heard, they enjoyed surprising success until they were caught up in the hysteria of the Cold War anti-communist witch-hunts of McCarthism and HUAC, blacklisted and driven from the stage in 1952 at the height of their popularity. Their triumphant 1955 Carnegie Hall reunion concert and the Vanguard recording of the event gave heart to a generation and served to kindle the 'folk boom' of the '50s & '60s, providing a foundation upon which virtually every subsequent folk performer would build. WORK O' THE WEAVERS recalls their timely story and timeless songs. Adhering faithfully to the Weavers' original arrangements, WORK O' THE WEAVERS' (James Durst, David Bernz, Marthat Sandefer & Mark Murphy) repertoire includes the beloved familiar songs--as well as some the Weavers never sang, but might be singing were they still active today. Rousing, refreshing and relevant.

Dave introduces a myriad of different juggling props in the very best tried and true step-by-step learning methods. Students will learn: three-ball cascade juggling, diabolo, devil or flower stick juggling, box manipulation and if time permits - spinning and balancing. Dave has taught countless seminars and workshops on juggling, and has attended a number of juggling conventions and workshops where he has learned from some of the best in the world.

During a 60- to 75-minute session, students explore the craft of songwriting by writing and recording a song that is uniquely their own, based on a theme or curriculum-related topic.

The song is then rehearsed and recorded, and the school receives a CD recording containing the students’ song (as well as an online downloadable Mp3 version to share with parents!)
