    Performance Length: 60 minutes

    Larry & Joe is the duo of Joropo maestro Larry Bellorín (Monagas, Venezuela) and Grammy-nominated bluegrass and oldtime star Joe Troop (Winston-Salem, North Carolina). These two virtuosic multi-instrumentalists fuse their respective Venezuelan and Appalachian folk traditions on the harp, banjo, cuatro, fiddle, upright bass, guitar, and maracas to prove that music has no borders. Their engaging bilingual (esp / eng) program includes storytelling, humor, singalongs, and dancing.

    Larry & Joe’s Arts Discovery Education Series show will include a musical performance, an integrated Spanish lesson, an educational discussion about their instruments, and a special sing-along.

    Curriculum Connections: Music, Cultural Arts, Language Arts, Bilingual (Spanish/English), Social Studies
