I am Mr. Burns. I am the Arts Teacher at Keavy. I am reaching out to the community for some help. I am in the process of starting a "Keavy Elementary Mountain Jug Band". To do this, I need some objects to make the instruments that we will use. I could use the following:
- Gallon ceramic jugs with a handle.
- A large metal wash tub
- A wash board
- Large metal spoons
- Cookie tins
I am hoping to get the instruments ready and have the band ready to perform for Veterans’ Day, November 11h.
I am also looking for musicians that would be able to come to our school and perform “Mountain/Bluegrass music, using instruments like the Dulcimer, Banjo, Fiddle, Guitar, Mandolin, Bass, etc. Our community is full of great musicians and I would like to use them to help the children learn the importance of that type of music to our culture.
Any help you could give will be greatly appreciated.
