Handy, Spook Passing Along the Folk Music Tradition History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
For generations children grew up singing with the whole family, at large gatherings, at school or in their churches. Before the advent of radio, TV and the internet this was the primary form of entertainment. Today, however, many people are worried that this centuries-old tradition is being deleted from the hard drive of the modern human experience. Along with that, society is losing one of the most powerful tools for building strong families and strong communities. This program is simple. Let’s make sure our kids know some of the treasures of American Folk Music. Singing old favorites like This Land is Your Land, If I had a Hammer, I’ve been Working on the Railroad, She'll be coming Around the Mountain and maybe some newer songs. If the children don’t already know a song we’ll take the time to teach them. Parents are encouraged to sit with their children and help them learn the songs. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year.

Emily Dickinson’s life comes alive in "My Business is to Sing!" as the poet delves into her home life, her relationships with her family, friends and love interests. Emily reveals her innermost passion for words, acknowledging that writing and poetry are her life. Dialogue melds into song and back to dialogue as Emily reflects on her life from age 9 to 24. Much has happened to mold her into the writer she is and will be. Developed and created by Barbara Dana and Kathleen Shimeta, the dialogue is based on Ms. Dana’s book, "A Voice of Her Own." Song settings of Miss Dickinson’s poems include the works of composers Martin Hennessy, Aaron Copland, Drew Heminger, Michael Conley, Ricky Ian Gordon, Vincent Persichetti and William Roy. My Business is to Sing! is offered as a performance with Barbara Dana and Kathleen Shimeta with Martin Hennessy, pianist.
