Newport String Project

Newport String Project

Ages 6 - 12

Fiddlers EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks of the Newport String Project and Rachel Panitch play the kind of infectious toe-tapping music that engages children of all ages, from 1 to 99.  So anyone is welcome to sit in on this workshop. But the program targets children from 6 to 12 in a mixture of song and dance interwoven with the magic of old-time fiddle music.  Young and old are entranced by the sizzling bows of EmmaLee and Rachel as they demonstrate the art of traditional fiddling with brand new twists. This dynamic duo leads children into the land of song-writing showing them how to create new lyrics for old tunes.  Then it’s time to shake those wiggles out with circle dances that blend movement and fun, all to the tune of fiddle music.
