The Stoop Storytelling Sereis: Things that Scare Me
Presented by The Columbia Festival of the Arts in Partnership with Howard Community College.

Things That Scare Me is also the theme of the art exhibit in The Rouse Company Foundation Gallery.

Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy: Masters of the Fiddle
Presented by the Columbia Festival of the Arts. They are two of the world’s most celebrated fiddlers melding their virtuosities into a whirlwind of fiddle-driven music, dance, and song, combining the best of French, Celtic and American Bluegrass and even Cajun styles, transforming it all into a whole new and unique musical experience. They also happen to be married. ”It’s always a treat for the two of us to share our passion in life, which is music, and go out on tour together,” MacMaster says, “this is a family affair.” And, it truly is, as the performance will also feature the couple’s musically gifted young children!
