Haynes, Jeff The Rhythm & Your Words Literature- Poetry,
Music,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Sometimes the key to self expression is to listen. Percussionist Jeff Haynes creates an array of percussive landscapes, to help writers heighten their awareness and sensitivity to the rhythm and the range of their inner voice. Over the course of this two day writing and performance workshop, participants will be engaged in various exercises and discussions to help them connect Jeff’s percussive textures with their inner voice. They will see first hand how percussion can bring out different inflections in their writing and delivery. The workshop invites participants to bring their poems to perform with Jeff and/or come with an open mind, ready to write and perform something inspired by the sessions. As participants listen to Jeff play, they will become in-tune with the “voice” of the rhythm. Participants will be challenged to allow their writing and performances to reflect on: how the rhythm makes them feel; where does it take them; and what their inner voice will say in return. Each participant will perform with Jeff.

These classics are sung by Paul (the Acoustic Warrior) and accompanied by his acoustic guitar. From 'Bye Bye Blackbird' to 'Sunny Side of the Street', the program is as up-beat as it is memorable.

Rosenberg, Paul Homespun Community Dancing with Peter, Paul & George Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Dance
Come kick up your heels to live fiddle music! Enjoy a tradition of community dancing and music handed down from generation to generation. Everyone gets involved – from ages 2 to 102 (especially those who have not danced before) -- in easy-to-learn American barn dance favorites: circles, squares, contras, as well as folk dances from around the world, like Ireland, Russia, Turkey, Israel, Tahiti, Mexico, France, Scandinavia, China and Africa. The toe-tapping tunes consist of reels, jigs, polkas, hornpipes and waltzes. Instruments may include fiddle, banjo, flute, pennywhistle, clarinet, guitar, piano, recorder, percussion, and more. While participation in the dancing is encouraged -- it's hard to sit still -- it's also fun to just watch and listen to the music. This program helps children develop an awareness of our traditional way of life - when people lived without electricity and had to make their own entertainment - and discusses the origins, sounds and uses of traditional instruments. The Family Dance usually includes a short sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures. Here's a video sample of a family dance: http://homespun.biz/interfamilydance.htm

Arnold, Speedy Speedy Arnold's Entertainment Emporium Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Other
I am available to play nearly any type of music, centering on folk, rock, kids, country,and bluegrass. With an interactive, humorous slant, I prefer to have folks singalong, suggest songs, and even write tunes as we go. I prefer intimate settings, (small groups are better) such as house concerts, living room-type performances, private gatherings, but I'm not limited by the size of the group.
