Pelon greeted many of the audience members after her performance.
Pelon exhibited several of her double ocarinas.
A Kiowa courting flute hangs from the shelf beside a rattle instrument made with goat hooves. Above them sits a gemshorn, an instrument made from the horns of animals like cattle, goats and oxen.
The crumhorn, left, and the cornamuse, right, come from Germany. Behind them is a pennywhistle.

A special note from Lauren Pelon…

Ok…I present hundreds of community concerts, humanities programs
and school shows every year….but it is rare to receive such a warm
welcome from so many lovely people with such “eager hands” ready to
assist in whatever way possible. You were simply the best…helpful,
generous (thank you for the lovely welcoming bag of goodies!),
dedicated & talented artists, compassionate and fun! I greatly
enjoyed working with you, and look forward to staying in touch

Thank you for your dedication to the Madison Area Arts Council, for
presenting my program in Madison, for all the hauling (and other
help) and for all the good you are doing in the world.

I hope that it will be possible to work with you again sometime in
the future! Let’s stay in touch.

Gratefully yours – with best regards,

Lauren Pelon

Lauren will be presenting her program, ‘The Living Roots of Music’, on January 16th, see you there!
