In order to once again celebrate different cultures during Creative Discovery Museum's Summer Folklife Music and Dance Series, this year the Museum is kicking-off the festivities with polka style as they welcome Musik Meisters to perform Saturday from 1-3 p.m. in the Museum Atrium.
"The Musik Meisters are about as authentic a polka band as you can get. Based in Nashville, the members of this charismatic musical group have been ‘rolling out the barrels’ with audiences around the United States for over a decade," officials said.
"For several years the Museum has offered visitors a special glimpse at some of the regions diverse cultural artists,” said Liza Blair, arts manager at Creative Discovery Museum. “This summer we are proud to kick things off with the up and lively sight and sounds of Musik Meisters. Children of all ages, and adults, will really enjoy this group."
The Folklife Summer Music and Dance Series takes place every June, July and August and features local and regional ethnic and cultural artists. The series was created as a way of promoting the areas diverse, expressive folk arts through engaging public experiences. The next session will be held on July 12 and will feature the Island Steel Pan Band.
All activities are included with paid admission to the Museum.
