Local Guitarist Presents Cultural Music For Kids
Oleg Kruglyakov, with his balalaika, one of many instruments he will demonstrate on August 26th.
Do you want to expose your kids to some truly unique and exciting music at the Beachland Ballroom? I am a local Cleveland musician who has been collaborating with musicians to offer free educational concerts and workshops, geared for kids between the ages of 5 through 9. There are two events that will be held at the Beachland Ballroom in August, featuring some outstanding local artists rich with cultural history.
On Sunday, August 19th at 2 pm, I have invited local blues musician Austin Walkin’ Cane to present his old-style, traditional blues music to the kids. On Sunday, August 26th at 2 pm, Wood has invited Russian musician Oleg Kruglyakov to feature some of his traditional Russian instruments.
Both concerts will include traditional and original songs performed by the artists. I will moderate the concerts and engage kids in the music, and answer questions to help them learn about the different forms of music.
The events will be held at the Beachland Ballroom at 2pm on the consecutive Sunday afternoons of August 19th and August 26th, and both are free and open to the public. These events are made possible by the Artists in Residence grant program.
