Museum Story Time: When Uncle Took the Fiddle

Graphic featuring the cover of the book When Uncle Took the Fiddle.

Date: Friday, January 5, 2023

Time: 10:30 a.m. EST

Location: The Learning Center, Birthplace of Country Music Museum

Cost: Free and open to the public

Join us in the museum’s Learning Center for our monthly Museum Story Time program. Aimed at toddler-age children and their grown-ups, we will gather on the first Friday of each month for a music- or Appalachia-related storybook, a tune or two by WBCM Radio Bristol show host Ella Patrick, and a related activity or coloring sheet. This month we will be doing a fun banjo-art craft!

For January we will be reading When Uncle Took the Fiddle written by Libba Moore Gray and illustrated by Lloyd Bloom.

About When Uncle Took the Fiddle

When the entire family declares they are exhausted, Uncle reaches for the fiddle, and before you know it, Grandpa’s feet are stomping, grandma’s hands are clapping, and everyone finds good cheer. This book explores the wonderful power of music!
