Adams City, CO
A wide variety of programs are available: school assemblies, string clinics, fiddling workshops, classroom enrichment, and after school activities. Loretta uses the fiddle, guitar, autoharp, whistles, flutes, banjo, and bodhran drum to demonstrate all types of tunes and rhythms used in traditional music. Celtic music includes many types of tunes from Ireland and Scotland. Loretta explains how American traditional music developed from a diverse combination of these cultures and more. Students participate in learning about the history of the instruments, the language, the clothing, the people, and the music. Student participation in week long music camps provides a more hands-on experience for a deeper understanding and growth.
