    Super Saturdays!-Learn How to Play the Bowed Psaltery

    Crafts with Kiesa


    As part of the SUPER SATURDAYS! at the Orchard at Altapass, Kiesa Kay, musician and playwright will again work/play with kids on the bowed psaltery—an ancient instrument popular in the Appalachians in this part 2 session. Kiesa will help kids learn to play the bowed psaltery by ear and enjoy a few tunes on this lovely triangular instrument. Parents are welcome. FREE! 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.
