Celebrate engaging narratives, animal characters, songs in different languages and home-spun wisdom as one of New England’s favorite storytellers takes us from the heart of the Amazon rainforest to the villages of Africa on the wings of story, rhythm and song. “My family was at your amazing performance of “Join In” yesterday. It’s amazing how you bring together many aspects of art and present them for kids so they use their imagination to “see” all the characters you’re talking, dancing and singing about. Personally, I was very happy with your folktales about the rainforests. I’m from Brazil where we have a rich heritage from Africa and we live in the US where my son was born. We loved to hear “O Pião entrou na roda, ó pião! Roda pião, bambeia pião!”. I used to sing this song myself when I was kid. It was delightful. :~)” ~Marcia, Linden School, Malden, MA

Schuman, Sandy Same and Different: The Neverending Story of Chanukah History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Many people have some knowledge of the Jewish holiday of Chanukah, usually incomplete and often inaccurate. I present the historical origins of the holiday in a way that is entertaining, understandable, and informative to audiences whether or not they are already familiar with the holiday. I am especially concerned with universal aspects of the story that relate to the ongoing struggle of people whose cultural and/ or religious background is different from that of the dominant culture. (This presentation was featured at "Sharing the Fire: The Northeast Storytelling Conference" in 2013 and will be published in "Story Club Magazine" in December, 2016.)

Multicultural- Other,
Music
Your library supplies the atmosphere—cornstalks, hay bales, cider, pies and books – for the event. Homespun supplies the dance caller and musicians on fiddle, guitar, gourd and modern banjo, and tin whistle. Homespun leads participants in square, contra and circle dances brought to America from Europe and Africa. Connect with centuries-old traditions and celebrate the bounty of the harvest as generations of Americans have done. Traditional dancing helps build a sense of community. The audience has fun working together to learn the dances. Participants experience a bit of living history - they learn firsthand how people have socialized for many generations and hear anecdotes from American (and global) history that inspired the dances and music. Community dancing develops participants’ communication and listening skills, and improves physical coordination…dancing is great exercise! The “Community Harvest Dance” includes a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures. We play tunes, sing songs, and teach about the origins of traditional folk instruments including the fiddle, modern and gourd banjo, mandolin, penny whistle, clarinet, guitar, recorder, and more.
