Due to the predicted inclement weather, we are rescheduling this month’s Fiddle Scouts program to January 25th.

Our musician, Brian Kruschwitz is coming up from Indiana and we didn’t want him to get stuck in an ice storm.

Brian will bring a collection of uncommon, unusual and sometimes downright odd instruments. He will use songs and stories to bring these instruments to life. Some audience members will get to try them out!
