Your audiences will roar in laughter, pause in reflection, wipe a tear, and leave both enlightened and fulfilled with a new reverence for life, love, and the American west. Add in solid instrumentation and Aspen's nationally-award-winning songs and poems, a featured set by award-winning 11 year-old singer songwriter Alice Black, or smokin' mandolin and duo vocals with nationally-touring singer/songwriter Kerry Grombacher, you can count on creating an evening to remember!
Kids play songs in the first five minutes! Children learn to make chords, strum, count in rhythm, change chords, and play/sing along to familiar children's songs. Instruments provided.
