Paul and Carla Roberts present music program at library today
Friday, November 12, 2010

Paul and Carla Roberts demonstrate rare and exotic musical instruments from around the world, 5 p.m. today, July 16, at the Ruby Sisson Library.

The instruments the Roberts will demonstrate include Indian sitar, Chinese cheng, Turkish saz, Irish bodhran, Native American flute, Middle Eastern dumbek, Japanese shakuhachi, cello-banjo and recorders.

The musical program is in support of Janna Kim, a musician whose goal is to bring the happy sounds of the American banjo to her country, Uzbekistan. Kim is a vivacious 24-year-old professional singer who taught herself how to play banjo over the Internet, using a makeshift instrument. She is the only banjo player in Uzbekistan.

Working through Elation Center for the Arts, the Roberts have raised most of the money to purchase a profession bluegrass banjo for Kim.

Come to the library to hear the music of instruments from around the world and help support a gifted musician halfway around the world.
