In this heartwarming, inspiring and sometime humorous concert Spook will share stories and songs he learned directly from Pete Seeger or indirectly from Woody Guthrie or his own songs about the places he’s been, people he’s met and the predicaments he’s found himself in.

Carpenter, Margot Learning to Like the World Life Skills- Other,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
In three workshops, teachers Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy show children that their deepest desire is to like the world on an honest basis, and that everything--from a flower to mathematics to their mothers--can be used to like the world. Young people learn this big, important fact--that they can honestly like the world, even as they may be critical of bad things in it, because its structure is sensible, even beautiful, a oneness of opposites. They're encouraged to love knowledge, and through these classes they learn to respect one another more and become kinder to family, friends, and people of other cultures. Class 1: Books Tell You: the World & You are a deep and surprising team; Class 2: What Will Make a Person Truly Strong; or Martin Luther King & the Children's March; Class 3: Do we Want to Be Like Music? Ken Kimmelman's award winning anti-prejudice film "Brushstrokes" is shown.

Bromka, Sondra & John Bells & Motley Victorian Musical Celebration of Christmas Past History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Music and customs of a traditional Christmas of Dickens' time included jovial and ceremonial songs with choruses for all to share, ballads steeped history, costumed characters or 'guisers,' tableaux and games, dances, and the presence of holly, ivy, and evergreen. This musical voyage back to the spirit of Christmas Past offers a magical time for family and friends to gather and share the origins of our traditions. Across England, wealthy households would celebrate with great musical feasts and pageants, and folks would go from door to door, singing wassailing songs that ended with the request for 'a toast and a good loaf or cheese, and we’ll be on our way.' Featured will be wassail songs from Cornwall, Somerset, and Gloucestershire. Other traditions will include a special processional bagpipe air from Northumberland to 'pipe your bounds' to insure abundance and well being throughout the new year. This peek behind the history of Christmas celebration uncovers the universal within the season's mirth and merriment, and plants the seeds of ideas for reestablishing some of the old traditional elements for community celebrations - further enriching the meaning and majesty of this important holiday season.
