Barb and Russ Childers

Barb and Russ Childers ("Bear Foot")

Mountain Christmas

Curriculum: English/Language Arts, Music, Social & Cultural, Social Studies

Appalachian artists Russ and Barb Childers bring to life disappearing regional Christmas customs and folklore of Eastern Kentucky with seasonal tall tales, rare mountain carols, and old-time tunes on fiddle, banjo, and lap dulcimer. Dancing limberjacks, talking animals, and a mummers play are part of the merriment. Russ becomes a “live” Christmas tree decorated with traditional handmade ornaments for a surprise ending.
