‘Folk Music as History’ aims at young audience

“Folk Music as History,” a five-day series for children, will be offered during the Enumclaw School District’s midwinter break.

Sessions are planned for each day next week, Monday through Feb. 22, at The Chalet Theater on Wells Street. Shows run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily.

The series is a presentation of the nonprofit Chalet Arts Showcase Theater and Cassandra Music.

The daily schedule consists of:

• Monday — An introduction and songs, “Folk Music as History,” by Phil Hansen;

• Tuesday — “Wagon Trains and Ghost Towns,” with Daniel Palmer;

• Feb. 20 — “Folk Songs for Children,” with Eric Ode;

• Feb. 21 — “Folk Music as Protest,” with Gary Kanter; and

• Feb. 22 — Hansen offers a wrap-up and “Tall Tales and Folk Heroes.”

There is a price break for parents who send children multiple days. Admission is $10 for one day, $15 for two days, $20 for three days, $25 for four days and $30 for all five days. Children must be accompanied by a chaperone, who is admitted free. A second chaperone, or adults attending without children, pay the same rate.

Tickets are available at the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce office and will be available at The Chalet Theater the day of the event. Tickets also may be purchased online at
