Dr. Sam Tsugawa conducts the Springville High School folk ensemble, which meets every Thursday after school. This program is mainly for high school students, but two Springville Junior High students are involved. Emily Daybell and Dylan Larsen both play the bass. Anyone in the high school can join. All they have to do is show up.
Members of the folk ensemble play violins, fiddles, basses, mandolins, and banjos. They play Bluegrass, Irish and Folk music. They use no music and play by ear. Dr. Tsugawa said, “We add on more and more as long as it sounds good.” Dylan said, “I like all the music that we play.”
