Everyone will clap, sing and dance in a celebration of creative movement, self expression, and friendly cooperation. This program was created especially for 2014 SUMMER READING PROGRAM Fizz! Boom! Read! and ties into that theme. An experienced folk music performer and family literacy teacher, with a specialty in traditional American singing games, Cathy uses guitar, banjo, limberjacks, flute, and penny whistle in her programs which are tailored for specific age groups. She has performed for over 25 years for museums, schools, libraries and festivals. 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.
