Musical Jubilee

Featuring:


**DAN HULSE: Strolling Minstrel

Again appearing at the Zelienople Fall Festival, Dan will bring his banjo and harmonica to the streets of Z-town. But, before the strolling will come a one hour summary of the Early Years of Music as part of The Musical Jubilee. Along with the banjo tunes will be guitar and mandolin numbers showcasing the styles of Jimmie Rodgers, Merle Travis, Bill Monroe and the Carter family to name a few.  Joining Dan will be his wife, Jean, on autoharp and vocals and son, Ben on dobro and vocals. The songs in this show were chosen for their importance to the development of the country and many types of music, featuring innovations on guitar, banjo and mandolin, and they are classic sing-a-longs. Be prepared to tap your toes, give a “holler”, and share in the memories.


In 1984, Dan first strolled through Boyertown USA, an amusement park in Altoona, Pa. for the first summer of the park’s operation. Once bitten by the strolling bug, Dan looked for other opportunities. He was scheduled to stroll through Old Bedford Village and Mifflinburg Bug Days several times. After that, many festivals in Central and Western PA scheduled strolls by Dan, including the Blair Arts Festival, Westmoreland Arts Festival, Blairsville, Saltzburg Canal Days, Hollidaysburg Diamond Days, Brockway Fourth of July, Ridgway, and the Delmont Apple Festival. Old thyme songs, silly songs, songs made up on the spot, they all put in a appearance during a stroll. Sometimes bad jokes appear, too. So, you tell the jokes, and Dan will play the banjo. Have banjo-will travel!




**THE NORTH STAR KIDS

Pittsburgh’s own North Star Kids, under the direction of Annie Snyder throughout Pittsburgh and the Tri-State area for the past three decades, will be performing at the Country Fall Festival!


This song and dance troupe is made up of 30 auditioned kids, ages 7 - 13. Their popular shows have been performed at countless conventions, corporate events, and special events.

The North Star Kids have had the privilege of performing live on stage with Celine Dione, Barry Manilow, John Lithgow, and the first American Idol, Kelly Clarkson!  They had a major role in 8 performances of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat for the New York Touring Company at the Benedum Center.  Several years ago, their talented voices and winning personalities were brought to the attention of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra with whom they have done 6 concerts and recorded a CD. They have gone on to record another CD with the River City Brass Band, along with being the guest performers in 13 of their concerts.


Every September 11, the North Star Kids mix a little love and hope into their lives of the familiesand friends of the Flight 93 victims by traveling to Shanksville and singing a memorial presentation. This will mark their 16th year. So on Sunday, October 15, at 1:00 p.m. join the North Star Kids in the big tent at the Country FallFestival for a lively performance, in their amazing floorshow entitled The Spirit of Broadway!!


**DIANE BROSIUS - Diane’s Joysong”

After growing up in a pastor’s home, Diane hit the night club circuit traveling

around the country.  She is a master of stagecraft- an actor at heart, who under-

stands the connection of lyric and music. More than a singer, Diane is a thoroughly

engaging performer who is thoroughly engaged. Her joy attests to her passion for

the Lord and her personal connection with Him while embracing everyone in

the audience.

Diane and her husband Larry have lived, worked, and served in the Beaver Valley,

Pa. area since 2002.
