Derik Nelson & Family - Acoustic Performance

Sat, July 27, 2019
12:00pm - 1:00pm
U.S. Cultural Ambassadors and local sibling singers Derik, Riana, and Dalten will perform an acoustic unplugged performance for all ages. This event is co-produced by Hands On Children’s Museum and American Music Abroad. The siblings will perform originals and favorite cover songs in their signature 3-part-harmonies with acoustic guitar, and talk about their experience working with American Music Abroad and the U.S. Department of State as Cultural Ambassadors in Moldova and Albania in 2018. Saturday’s special puppet guest “Hairy Gary” is a delight for kids, and is an international hit, too!

Derik Nelson & Family has been re-selected for the American Music Abroad program, traveling to countries (locations TBA) in 2019/2020 sharing American music, their family harmonies, and American values through community acoustic concerts and educational workshops. They grew up in Olympia, Derik is well known as the Lead Guitarist on FOX TV’s “Glee,” and they've toured 100+ cities with their unique headlining multimedia show in Performing Arts Centers across the United States over the last few years.

American Music Abroad is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by the Association of American Voices.
