“Yurtfolk” is coming to the Lake County Public Library on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 2 p.m. with a program for youngsters and their families.

Entitled “Music and Culture of Mexico,” the program will explore the culture of Mexico through an interactive blend of music, folk dance, and more. Those attending will learn about some colorful characters, artists, and writers from different regions as well as the traditions and “rules” of the serenade language.

Presenters are LuAnne Harley and Brian Kruschwitz who live in a yurt in North Manchester, Ind., with their two children.

Kruschwitz is a multi-instrumentalist and “armchair” ethnomusicologist whose newest venture has been to start a ukulele choir. He enjoys putting old and/or broken-down instruments into working order

Harley has a background as a Spanish teacher, traveling theatre member, library staff member, language interpreter, camp administrator, and study-abroad director.

Following the presentation, Yurtfolk will recommend a list of library books referred to during the presentation as well as others that complement the theme.

Admission is free, but tickets must be obtained at the library.

This is a presentation funded by Friends of Lake County Public Library.
