The long weekend will pass in a few short hours and what are Dr. Condee's students doing? Are they barbecuing? Are they sun bathing? Oh my no. These are students of the Interdisciplinary Arts who have spent the month studying with internationally recognized Balinese puppeteer and award-winning performer, educator and author I Nyoman Sedana, Ph.D.

They have learned their lessons well and will be presenting a Wayang Kulit-Multi-Media-Extravaganza tomorrow night, May 30 at 7:00 PM. This performance is free but donations will be accepted for the Indonesian earthquake recovery efforts.

Charlie & Celia: “Through sweet melodies and lush, full arrangements, Charlie and Celia's new CD Snapshot is the type of music that one might hear on NPR's Mountain Stage. I have no doubt their music will find it's way there at some point. Between the myriad of string instruments (dulcimer, harp, banjo, guitar) and the full, satisfying vocal arrangements, this CD will give pleasure to anyone looking for a kind of down-home comfort.”
Diana Hamilton

Rattletrap: “Old-time music is a term that was branded to the music of the rural south during the golden age of radio. Rattletrap’s sound is born of that time, the 19th and early 20th century, but lives and breathe today in the hands of a vibrant new generation of musicians. Rattletrap is constantly pushing old-time music to new heights, creating a contagious sound that will make you want to move your feet.”
