World Communities Concert
K-6, 45 minutes
Add a new dimension to your studies of various world cultures with joyous song! Your students will experience an Indian tabla drum, an exotic stringed instrument from Europe, a “pocket instrument” with global roots and more as they sing in various languages, answer questions, laugh, and perhaps most importantly, think about ways in which we are all similar. Dave also talks about his own eye-opening trips to Asia and the Middle East.

K-8, 45-50 minutes
With banjo, guitar, bones, spoons, washboard, jaw harp, Native American water drum and more, Dave leads students on a fun-filled musical journey back to 19th-century America.
Starting with the Cumberland Gap, Lewis and Clark, and the Erie Canal, this program walks students across the Mississippi River and out to Oregon and California as they answer questions, act out songs, move, laugh, sing, wonder and inquire.
Topics covered include Americans' motivations to move west, the routes, the wagon trains, the Gold Rush, relations with the Native people and more.
