!, Spook Handy Songs of the Great Depression and Today History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
When the Great Depression hit, a whole new genre of American folk music was born. Songs about the Dust Bowl, the Great Migration, bread lines and soup kitchens, the New Deal and times of triumph and struggle circulated throughout labor camps, churches and family gatherings. These songs depicted down-to-earth everyday realities of the American laborer and farmer, the hungry and the industrious, centuries old traditions and the transition to a new modern society. It can be surprising how many of these old songs speak of challenges we face today and how new songs written about today's America can so resemble the songs of the Great Depression. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

Chip Richter’s Young Songwriters Workshop is an exciting and fun journey through the craft of writing songs.

Learning how to use hooks, rhymes, and words that sing, students will have the opportunity to begin writing their own songs right away. The students will listen to songs, sing songs, analyze and diagram songs, all in a very fun, interactive way. The Young Songwriters Workshop works well as a plug-in to your local school’s English and or Language Arts course study. Many teachers will use the Young Songwriters Workshop to culminate a section on journaling, poetry, or creative writing. In the end students will have lots of fun, discover the magic of words, and learn something about what's in a song and perhaps, what's in their heart.

Boertzel, Brooke The Storyteller's Candle Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
In 1929, a warm and dynamic woman named Pura Belpré became the first Latina librarian in New York City. At a time when non-English speakers didn’t always feel welcome in the library, Pura helped many immigrants to feel at home there, and inspired a love of reading in generations of young people. In The Storyteller’s Candle, a skilled bilingual storyteller plays Pura, greeting audiences in their own school or public library, and showing them the wonders that can take place there. Through a blend of storytelling, music and puppetry, young audiences will learn about Puerto Rican folklore and the library’s important role in the community. Kids sing along and become puppeteers as Pura’s stories unfold. Based on the bilingual book, The Storyteller’s Candle By Lucia González with illustrations by Lulu Delacre.
