The Instrument Petting Zoo returned to the Charlotte Public Library on Friday July 19th with Suzanne Pellerin, her grandson and Mark Sustic as zoo keepers. On the hottest day of the year (so far – 96 at last check), about 55 young folks filled the space and time with parents, grandparents, librarians and caregivers trying out fiddles, banjos, guitars, ukes, accordions and more. We like to think its at least partly about sowing the seeds for future trad players. Thanks to Cheryl Sloan and the library for welcoming us – already invited back for next year – and the Mockingbird Foundation for the financial support!
