Barb and Russ Childers

Barb and Russ Childers ("Bear Foot")

Mountain Christmas

Curriculum: Cultural Connections, English/Language Arts, Music, 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.
