Artist-In Resident Works With NES Students

Russ ChildersRuss Childers is a traditional Appalachian musician, storyteller, and dance caller. Additionally, he is an artist-in-resident musician with a focus on music and its role in the Appalachian community.

He is a master banjo player with apprentices in two states through the auspices of the Ohio Arts Council and Kentucky Arts Council. In May 2000, he was recipient of the Appalachian Heritage Award from the Cincinnati Appalachian Community Development Association.

Mr. Childers is teaching fourth grade students about their Appalachian culture through song and dance September 2nd-October 3rd. The bean dinner for the students and their families is on Tuesday, September 15th at 6pm. The students will be performing the square dances for the families and public after the dinner. Students will showcase their square dance talents for the school on Wednesday, September 16th at 2pm. Saturday, October 3rd, at 11am, a select group of students will be performing at John Simon's Sorghum Festival.
