KidsAcoustic: Cinnamon Bird w/ Jane Hall
Some kinds of music are inherently age-inclusive. KidsAcoustic presents real music that parents can enjoy for its own sake, while the lively tunes and wonderful instruments draw kids in naturally.
For each concert, teacher and early string performer Shulamit Kleinerman joins forces with a duo partner from a folk or early music tradition. A personable forty-five minute program is followed by a hands-on opportunity for all the kids to try out our menagerie of instruments.
Ruthie Dornfeld and Shula are the duo Cinnamon Bird, sharing adventurous double fiddling of the Middle Ages and various folk traditions. Join us as we journey through 800 years of music -- from medieval melodies on matched vielles to traditional tunes from France, England, Appalachia, and Scandinavia on baroque and modern violins. Ruthie is hailed for her "dazzling array of styles" and improvisational flair. Arabic percussionist Jane Hall joins in to help create the sound of a time when some of the best things in Europe came from further east -- like medieval fiddles, and cinnamon. Come hear the legend of the bird that gives our duo its name.
Shulamit Kleinerman first added family house concerts to her offerings for children in 2007, and the audience quickly outgrew her teaching studio. The new space at Empty Sea is still welcoming, relaxed, and intimate enough for kids to scootch right upto the musicians feet but now theres also room to dance! Shula is passionate about bringing the arts of earlier ages alive for kids. From Mozart operas to baroque minuets to Shakespeare skits to medieval songs, her historical arts workshops connect kids with the sparkle of the past. More information about her performances and classes for kids and adults can be found at shulamitk.net.
