The Franklin County Public Libraries Presents Didgeridoo Down Under
July 3, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Franklin County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is excited to present a fun and fascinating program featuring Australian music, culture and entertainment on Monday, July 3rd with the Didgeridoo Down Under Show at 11:00 AM at the Carrabelle Branch Library and at 2:00 PM at the Eastpoint Branch Library. Library programs are free and open to the public and participants do not need a library card to participate.
The Didgeridoo Down Under Show is an energetic fusion of Australian music, culture, art, science, comedy, character building and audience participation. The didgeridoo has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years, and is known for its otherworldly sound. During the show, presenters will play a variety of exotic didgeridoos and world percussion instruments. They also use a multitude of props – maps, globes, artwork, puppets, motivational signs and more – to deliver educational lessons and empowering messages. The program is very participatory, and several segments involve kids playing instruments, dancing or acting out a story. It’s interactive, educational, motivational and super fun for all ages!
