There’s lots of fun programs planned for grade schoolers (K – 5th grades). The following events are planned for every Wednesday (except July 4th) from 11am to Noon during Summer Reading:
June 27th: Damsel with a Dulcimer – Rachel Lee Rogers of the Kentucky Humanities Council will be playing Jean Ritchie, who was a renown Kentucky musician and poet. Credited as the “Mother of Folk,” she will play her mountain dulcimer, highlighting many Kentucky folk songs.
July 11th: Rocking Out: The Art and Science of Sound – Sponsored by the Living Arts and Science Center, this program will have attendees learning with hands on sound discoveries like making water jump with a tuning fork! They’ll also play a variety of instruments and much more.
July 18th: Musical Petting Zoo – Bluegrass band, Lafferty Pike, will feature a fun musical petting zoo. Have fun listening to the band of four sisters and a mom play and show their instruments to everyone attending the show.
