Sean Gaskell will give a performance and educational demonstration on the kora, an ancient 21-stringed harp from West Africa. All-ages are welcome.

Sean will feature traditional songs that are the heart and soul of the kora's musical repertoire in addition to some of his own compositions. Funded by Friends of the Clinton, Freeland and Langley Libraries.

Sean Gaskell learned how to play the kora throughout the course of multiple visits to its homeland in Gambia, West Africa. Gaskell has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh, both of Brikama, Gambia. He has been featured at a number of music festivals in the US, Gambia, and Senegal.
