River Music Experience hosted Kidstock, a summer music program for kids ages 8-18, again this summer, sticking to a simple note: Letting kids be rock stars.
Campers are wrapping up a week of workshops and lessons taught by area musicians and led by Bret Dale, RME's director of programming and education. The students formed a band with fellow campers and will finish the program with a performance in front of their friends and families at noon Saturday at the Redstone Room, 129 N. Main St., Davenport.
Similar to Kidstock, RME will hold its annual Winter Blues program, featuring vocal and instrumental workshops with a focus on blues music composition and improvisation, in December. Sessions are open to area musicians ages 8-18. The program, which cost $175, runs the last week of December and concludes with a blues jam in the Redstone Room.
