Simple Gifts teaches participants of all ages to play spoons, following in the Appalachian tradition where two teaspoons are held in one hand and played as a percussion instrument. Once everyone has the hang of it, Simple Gifts introduces the basics of arranging music: where to play loud or quiet, how to vary the rhythm, and how to choose sounds that match the music. To top it off, workshop participants (especially children) are invited to perform on-stage with Simple Gifts at the concert that follows the workshop.
Recommended for ages 8 to adult.
Bring your own two teaspoons!
Meet at the amphitheater.
