Dance, Song, and the "Canhouse Band"
“Heritage ALIVE!”

For Booking:   828-226-0640

The Ammons Sisters present “Heritage Alive,” a unified presentation through Storytelling and Spontaneous Artwork that exemplifies the left (speaks with words) and right brain (speaks with pictures), as we bring our mountain heritage alive for our audiences K-12. With 27 years of experience, we have performed throughout the South, and just about anywhere within the school environment—stage, gym floor, playground, class room, media center...even in hallways for smaller audiences. Our stories stem from our own childhood within the Scotch-Irish heritage of Western North Carolina and 7 generations of family stories passed down.

Along with storytelling and spontaneous visual art, the performance includes music and song with interactive dance and the fun-filled Canhouse Band. Included within the storytelling is the touching poem “I Ain’t Nobody,” and it’s inspirational reprisal “I Am Somebody!” Time is provided for the students and teachers to carry the stories away for future reflection with “autograph time,” an opportunity to purchase our books and art prints (great for Author’s Day, Visual Art Day or Heritage Day).
