Crocker, Keith The Golden Age of Rock & Roll - When Music Married Television Media- Video,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
This is a program that I can guarantee will have your patrons dancing in the aisles. The program director has their pick of programs as I explore the golden age of Rock & Roll through clips from one of the following programs, The Ed Sullivan Show (aired 1948 through 1971), Hullabaloo (aired 1965 through 1966), Shindig (aired 1964 through 1966) or Shivaree (aired 1965 through 1966) . I will give a concise history on any program of your choosing, and I will show musical clips from my vast library of rare and unreleased performances. Your patrons will delight to hear live performances from the beginning of Rock & Roll (Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis) to the British Invasion (The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Herman's Hermits, The Hollies) and so much more. This is the definitive program on this subject, and you can book more than one presentation or even book all four in consecutive order. This is a great program for baby boomers to introduce their young ones to the music they had grown up with.

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.

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.

String Band, Homegrown An Unbroken Circle: Traditional Music in Popular Culture Music
The Homegrown String Band performs original acoustic arrangements of the traditional music that has become part of the popular roots and folk rock canon. All the songs the band presents have stood the test of time by not only surviving, but thriving and flourishing for hundreds of years via the folk process and oral tradition. Many popular rock bands were founded by avid listeners and students of traditional music. People like Jerry Garcia and Bob Dylan were very well versed in American blues and bluegrass as well as the folk traditions of the British Isles. Likewise The Homegrown String Band has drunk deeply from the well of blues, ballads, and breakdowns that have helped to shape the sounds of American popular music. In this program the band will be sharing their original interpretations of some of the traditional and early commercial recordings that have been covered by popular roots rockers from the Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan to Nirvana and Led Zeppelin.
