Come join Gail Dreifus and Denise Lundington, also know as the Recycled String Band, as they perform at this years 13th annual Kokanee Salmon Festival at 2 p.m. Oct. 5 During this free concert, the duo will lead children and their parents on a wild afternoon of songs and adventures ranging from the wonders of the ozone layer and water cycle to protecting and caring for our home planet — Earth.

Dreifus and Lundington are based near Yosemite National Park and love teaching about the natural world everywhere they go. They both have teaching backgrounds and are songwriters and accomplished musicians. They perform on guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, banjo, mandolin, and a variety of percussion instruments, but not all at once. Audience participation is encouraged to create a lively and educational performance. Their program is truly for all ages.

The purpose of their program is to teach young people ecology, environmental awareness, and natural history. They take this very seriously, but make the learning enjoyable and memorable by teaching through music and audience participation. They like to spread the joy of taking care of the world we share and believe that music is the universal language in doing this. They have performed at hundreds of school assemblies, county fairs, music festivals, national park and forest service programs and lots of other events.
