PineCone Youth Council Members to Perform on May 21



"Due to the weather forecast for this Saturday, May 21, 2016 and for the safety of our performers, vendors, attendees and staff, we have moved Fest in the West to our rain date.

Fest in the West will now be on Sunday, May 22, 2016. It will still be from noon to 6 PM at Parkside Town Commons."

Members of the PineCone Youth Council will perform at a new festival, Cary Citizen's Fest in the West, at Parkside Town Commons on Sunday, May 22 at 12:15 p.m. The festival, which is free to attend, runs from 12 noon - 6 p.m.

Participating students include: Sam Stage (fiddle), Eliza Meyer (fiddle), Emma Day (fiddle), Jacob Day (mandolin), Carter Ramquist (bass), Natalie Mundorf (guitar). Jessie Lang (guitar, mandolin) will be out at Artsplosure performing with her sister Chloe as The Lang Sisters; she looks forward to future opportunities to play with the PineCone Youth Council!

They chose the songs - four instrumentals and four with lyrics - and have been working hard with Jef Walter and Lynda & Jamie Dawson to prepare for this event. Please come show your support for these young musicians!

Other performers scheduled for the festival include Mountain Blues Trio and Peak City Blues Project. In addition to performances, there will be a Kids Zone sponsored by Children’s Lighthouse Learning Center, where kids can climb the “Ultimate Challenge,” have their faces painted, try henna tattoos, check out the interactive Little Farm, and be amazed by Dan the Magic Man! 

The festival will also feature a demonstration area featuring blacksmith Randy Stoltz; artists from the Gourd Society sharing gourd art; cloth dolls with Jack and Cean Coyle; wheel thrown pottery as demonstrated by Kenneth Neilson of Cary Pottery; stained glass with Rebecca and Chuck Allen; and more.

Youth Council members will also perform at Hillsborough’s Radius Pizzeria on May 26.
