On Tuesday, March 25, at 3 PM, at Loomis Village performer Roger Tincknell will present a multi-cultural, multi-lingual folk music journey. The program will be performed on a variety of stringed, wind and percussion instruments and explores the rich cultural tapestry of music from the Americas including Native and African American, and music of Indo-European, Russian and Southeast Asian immigrants. Audience participation through singing, moving, dancing and playing percussion is invited. The music threads the history of the New World and highlights cultural diversity as an interactive creative process. The event is free and open to the public.
Singer, multi-instrumentalist and two-time Parents’ Choice award-winning recording artist, Roger Tincknell brings over 30 years experience in performing arts and education to his interactive music programs. Roger accompanies himself on guitar, banjo, piano, mandolin, Irish bouzouki and Bodhran, Incan charango, Russian balalaika, Puerto Rican and Venezuelan cuatros, harmonica, Native American flutes, Latin percussion and African drums.
The event is sponsored in part by a grant from the South Hadley Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state Agency.
