The musicians for the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention's Children's Show this year are Abby Ladin & Sam Bartlett. Abby and Sam combine rhythmic clogging, hambone, and soulful singing with energetic banjo playing and the eerie sounds of the musical saw and jaw harp in a participatory family show that unfolds like a good story, entertaining and entrancing.
This program will be held in the Community Meeting Room on the 3rd floor of the Central Library.
Abby and Sam put percussive dance and Old-Time music into an audience's hands, its voice, its limbs and soles. This participatory show unfolds like a good story, entertaining and entrancing. Program directors for the Country Dance and Song Society's Family Week at Pinewoods, an intergenerational music and dance camp, Sam and Abby are also members of the Hogwire Stringband. For over twenty years, they have traveled and performed for thousands of school kids, as well as at festivals and on stages around the world.
