FARMINGTON — The Arts Institute of Western Maine will present a Children’s Program of Songs and Stories with Jennifer Armstrong at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 4, at the Farmington Public Library.

Families with grade school-aged children are encouraged to attend. There is no charge, but a family contribution of $10 would be appreciated.

Armstrong has spent her life writing, singing and making music with fiddle, bagpipe, banjo and words. She is a storyteller, singer, instrumentalist, poet and published author with humor, warmth and grace. She has worked as an artist-in-residence in folk arts, storytelling and as a performer across the country in many venues, including schools and libraries.

She lives on a farm in Belfast. “I sometimes feel I have stepped into the folk songs I learned from my parents when I am milking the goats or herding the turkeys into the pen,” Armstrong said.
