TROY — On Saturday, Feb. 27, the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center will host its annual family-night-out concert. The evening will be a fun date-night the whole family can enjoy. Come early and enjoy a casual hands-on workshop for the kids sponsored by the Mountain Dulcimer Society of Dayton.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m., a group of instructors will give the kids the opportunity to actually play the types of instruments that they will see on stage during the concert. Children can learn to make notes on the guitar, banjo, concertina, dulcimer and others.
Wild Carrot will perform at 7:30 p.m. in the ballroom. Pam Temple and husband Spencer Funk are the founders of the Roots based group. Pam and Spenser will share and demonstrate a number of instruments, including guitar, mandolin, concertina, lap dulcimer, and banjo delivering a hand-clappin’, toe-tappin’ introduction to traditional Americana. Share this family concert with grandparents as well as the kids.
Plan to come early and join in the hands-ons workshop for a real live introduction to making music on these unique instruments that make up the landscape of our American music. This concert and the workshop are free and open to the public.
