An Australian Celebration with Didgeridoo Down Under!
The Falmouth Public Library is pleased to host 3 online Zoom events on Tuesday, July 28th! Events will be available on our YouTube for all to view for the next week!
3 pm- Didgeridoo Down Under (variety show for all ages!)
Didgeridoo Down Under is an energetic fusion of Australian music, culture, puppetry, comedy, character building, storytelling and audience participation. The didgeridoo has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years, and is known for its otherworldly sound. But DDU is more than music. It’s interactive, educational, motivational and super fun for all ages!
4 pm Aussie Funk Jam (workshop for tweens and teens)
Aussie Funk Jam is a one-of-a-kind musical experience. In this hands-on workshop, participants learn how to play the didgeridoo — including vocalizing, creating simple rhythms and more — with homemade beginner instruments. The Funk Jam is cool, funky and unique … ideal for teens and tweens, but OK for ages 8 and up (even adults). Interested participants will either need to have a couple paper towel tubes available and tape, or pick up some from at the Main Library. Watch social media for more details.
6:30 pm Music & More from the Land Down Under (concert for adults)Music & More from the Land Down Under takes the audience on a musical journey to Australia and beyond, as the performer plays an assortment of didgeridoos and percussion instruments … mixed with colorful stories and humor. Our performers play a modern style, mixing fast-paced rhythms with relaxing soundscapes and organic sound effects. This program is best for adults, but is OK for kids with parental accompaniment.
