Boulder Acoustic Society offers musical interlude for area youth

When the Colorado band Boulder Acoustic Society came to Salisbury recently to perform at Looking Glass Artist Collective, they spent the afternoon offering a variety of music workshops.
An audience that included groups of young people from Salisbury Parks and Recreation, Miller Center, Nazareth Children’s Home and Amadeus Youth Chorus participated in the “The History of Jazz,” a lively interactive presentation.
Violinist Kailin Yong offered a fiddle workshop that incorporated all ages and levels. Then he was joined by bandmates Scott McCormick, Aaron Keim and Scott Aller in leading two simultaneous ukulele workshops: Ukulele 101 and Simple Songs for Uke.
McCormick, Keim and Aller capped off the afternoon with an acoustic performance of indie and punk hits played on ukulele, guitar and snare drum.
