from The Sheffield Museum of Rural Life (Canada)

Program image

Students and teachers will experience pioneer music and dancing first-hand in this session, led by one of America's most famous settlers, Charles Ingalls (1836-1902), father of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Charles will demonstrate some instruments popular with pioneers, such as the fiddle, whistle, fife, mouth harp, bagpipes, and accordion. He will use his fiddle to both lead the students in singing some of his favourite songs, and also to teach them some pioneer dances.
