Artist: Richard Crowson
My K-2 class had the best visit yesterday with ARTS Partner Richard Crowson. He tailor made this class for my kiddos and really gave them the best performance ever. First he talked to us about the banjo history and the singing cowboy of Kansas. He taught us some songs and made sure we all knew Kansas' state song, Home on the Range. He gave us cowboy dancing lessons and let each child that wanted to strum his banjo. It was a priceless performance. My older kids will get him later this week and they are very excited. He does a wonderful job of making his performance meaningful for each child.
