Students to ‘Celebrate West Virginia’

Fayette County students this week will “Celebrate West Virginia” with a program presented by Mick Souter’s Touring Musical Theater.

“Celebrate West Virginia” is a West Virginia pride program that highlights the people, history and heritage of the Mountain State in song and story. The program is presented by Souter, called the “Bard of Education.”

The program celebrates the history and heritage of West Virginia like no other cultural arts program. Souter’s performances on banjo, guitar, auto harp, dulcimer, fiddle and harmonica accompany well-known favorites like “Take Me Home Country Roads,” “John Henry,” “The West Virginia Hills,” and “Mountaineers Are Always Free,” along with Souter compositions “West Virginia Sunrise,” “Singin' Mountain Pride,” and the title song, “Celebrate West Virginia.”

As with all shows by Mick Souter's Touring Musical Theater, there is heritage content along with an abundance of high-energy singing and musicianship, spiced with plenty of audience participation. This is quality family entertainment performed by one of West Virginia's most actively touring artists.

Over the past 25 years, Souter has made over 3,000 appearances in schools, colleges, festivals, state parks and theaters in West Virginia and several other states with his various programs.

In Fayette County, Souter’s schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, Nov. 5 — Fayetteville Elementary School, 2 p.m.;

Wednesday, Nov. 6 — Ansted Elementary, 10 a.m.; and Valley Elementary, 1:45 p.m.;

Thursday, Nov. 7 — Mount Hope Elementary, 2 p.m.; and

Friday, Nov. 8 — Divide Elementary, 9:30 a.m.; and Meadow Bridge Elementary, 2 p.m.
