Pennsylvania German Music, Dance and Instruments

September 18, 2015

Through dance, songs and stories, audiences explore the traditions of Pennsylvania German music and dance. Dressed in authentic attire, Keith Brintzenhoff begins with a brief history of these rich traditions. He also performs and explains the roles that the guitar, harmonica, mountain dulcimer, banjo and autoharp play in Pennsylvania German music. Participants are taught to hoedown, as well as the fancy footwork of jigging.
