Free Admission RSVP

Dive into the traditional music of rural America with the Old-Time String Band Ensemble. The program features classic sub-genres like Appalachian fiddle and banjo music, Mid-West fiddle tunes, North Carolina and Georgia string band music, Cajun/Creole fiddle, traditional bluegrass, country blues and jug band music. Director David Bragger and the String Band will make you feel like you’re hanging out on the back porch with your closest friends. Then once you’ve enjoyed the sounds of Appalachia, the Klezmer Music Ensemble will transport you to pre-WWII Europe and America with the sounds of Golden Age klezmer. Director Mark Kligman programs traditional music from Yiddish Theatre and other Jewish Eastern European traditions.
