A vocal workshop in celebration of Martin Luther King with Sparky and Rhonda Rucker

Sparky and Rhonda Rucker are folklorists, musicians, historians, authors, storytellers and singers, accompanying themselves on guitar, banjo, harmonica, piano, spoons and bones. Performance highlights include the Kennedy Center, Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Prairie Home Companion, Mountain Stage, NPR’s Morning Edition, plus festivals, schools and concert halls nationwide and abroad.

We will sing together, explore harmonies, and prepare two songs to perform with Sparky and Rhonda as part of their FSGW concert in honor of Martin Luther King’s birthday (concert is at Washington Ethical Society on Saturday, January 17 at 8pm, see more details below). Singers are welcome to attend the Friday workshop regardless of whether they are able to perform in Saturday’s concert.
