SPIRIT OF THE SUWANNEE MUSIC PARK, LIVE OAK, FLA -Suwannee Spirit Kids Music Camp is held four times each year to help teach kids how to play instruments such as hand drums, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, vocals and more! The three-day camp is free. The only catch? Parent or guardian must be on the grounds while the kids are in class. Registration is Friday night with classes continuing all day Saturday. A cookout Saturday evening is one of the kids’ favorite events! Sunday afternoon the students present a concert that will just knock your socks off. Students leave with a sense of accomplishment and many have developed a love for playing music instruments or singing, just what they need to continue a life-long love of music. Kids 5-17 may participate.
Friday evening Mike Mullis will bring his variety show in the Music Hall. Mike, famous for his music, songwriting and performances, will keep the evening lively and filled with music and fun. He might even whip out a hoola hoop or two and ask for performers!
Saturday evening the fantastic Southern Rukus Band will have the house rocking as they bring Southern Rock, country and lots more for your dancing and listening enjoyment. This band is one of the favorites at the Music Hall and is definitely a crowd-pleasing group.
