Concert Dave brings along his banjo, guitar, bones, spoons, washboard and jaw harp for a special program full of musical fun. Audience members will delight in seeing and learning a bit about these instruments up close while enjoying some great participatory songs performed on each. Expect singalongs, movement songs, laughter, guessing games, even a few cartoon themes.....some audience members may even be invited to come up on "stage" and join in the fun with Dave! "Thank you for a great show. Your ability to involve both the children and adults in the audience made it a truly enjoyable night" Darren Miller, Program Director, Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts, Blue Mountain Lake NY - - - - - - "One World, Many Stories" With guitar, Indian tabla drum, European octave mandolin, an exotic “pocket instrument” with global roots and more, Dave Ruch leads the audience on a fun-filled musical journey across the world. Audience members become active participants in the program as they sing along (in English, Nigerian, Italian, Japanese, and Russian!), answer questions, play musical games and act out songs. Some audience members will even be invited "on stage" to help the performer, and (for groups of 100 or less) all will have a chance to touch and play one of the instruments after the concert. Topics covered include the unique ways in which people around the world live (past and present), and perhaps most importantly, the many similarities that we all share. Dave also talks about his own eye-opening trips to India and the Middle East. 45 minutes long, adaptable for all ages "We all loved your performance....you sure do live up to all the great things people say about you!" Jamie Basiliere, Director, Child Care Council of the North Country, Plattsburgh NY Full program listing at http://www.daveruch.com/children
