Recycled Rhythm, Younger Children

Margaret’s Recycled Rhythm presentation is lively, satisfying entertainment for children three to seven years old and their parents.

Margaret brings with her a range of sturdy rhythm instruments she has made from recycled objects. Kids and adults are encouraged to pick up and experiment with pill-bottle shakers, milk bottle maracas, tin-can guarros, bottle-cap jingle sticks, wood branch claves and bamboo clackers.

Accompanying herself on Autoharp and spoons, Margaret performs engaging new and traditional children’s songs so everyone can shake and bang and sing and dance along.

Maximum number of kids: Private party, 12. Festival performance, as determined by capacity of children’s area stage (but only a dozen or so kids will be able to play on any one song). Length of performance: 30 minutes to one hour.
