Columbus Day Weekend Events at NYBG

For all you folks with kiddies out there, NYBG has some great programming all throughout this Columbus Day weekend. Kids can make their own apple cider and applesauce, build a scarecrow, and even rock out to some live music. Here's the lineup for the musical performances:
Musical Entertainment
in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, 12–4 p.m.
Saturday: M Shanghai String Band
Good times are plenty with the M Shanghai String Band playing traditional and modern folk songs around a single microphone.
Sunday: The Ukeladies
Audience sing-a-longs and dance are part of the fun with The Ukeladies, a perpetually-touring act from Regina, Canada, with a lust for life. Sounds of the fiddle ukulele, toy piano, flute, glockenspiel, pennywhistle, and kazoo combine in perfect melody to send cowboy love songs and favorities from the ’30s and ’40s.
Monday: The Manhattan Valley Ramblers
Dance and have a good time to music that combines fiddle and banjo instrumentals with harmony singing ―a staple of country and bluegrass.
