Super Saturdays! - Learn To Play the Harmonica
Learn To Play the Harmonica
The first of a summer series of heritage fun for kids. Alvin returns to the Orchard with a class to teach the harmonica. Children who have never "hummed" a tune on the harmonica will learn the basics of the instrument and get an insight into the music brought to Appalachia by immigrants generations ago. A $15 fee is charged for the harmonica that each child takes home. Parents are welcome.
And when the class is over, parents and kids can hike one of the ten walking trails around the Orchard and check out the General Store.
The Orchard at Altapass is located at 1025 Orchard Road in Spruce Pine, mile marker 328.3 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Open from 10 to 5PM, Wednesday-Sunday through October.
