Spring Break Kids Program: Carrying on the Folk Tradition

  • North Berrien Historical Museum 300 Coloma Ave Coloma MI 49038 United States (map)

Fiona Dickinson, a Grand Rapids-based songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and music educator, will visit the North Berrien Historical Museum on the afternoon of Thursday, April 4 to speak on the tradition of folk music and its importance in building our cultural identity.

Fiona will bolster this discussion by demonstrating and passing around different instruments for the children. Following this, the children will be asked to help Fiona rework a traditional folk song.

This free program is designed for children ages 6-12. For questions, please call the Museum at (269) 468-3330 or email peter@northberrienhistory.org.
