The Crane Wives Visit The 5th Graders!

Post date: Apr 19, 2016

Kate Pillsbury, Emilee Petersmark, and Dan Rickabus from The Crane Wives visited the 5th graders today! It was by far the coolest thing that has ever happened in my room. The Crane Wives are a very popular indie folk-rock band from Grand Rapids. They are actually my favorite band! They have toured around the country and have four full-length original albums out. Not only did they perform for us, but we sang together, too! We collaborated and sang The Crane Wives original song, "Sleeping Giants". This was a dream come true for my students to be able to learn from these superstar musicians. In between their songs, Kate, Emilee, and Dan talked to the students about staying positive, never giving up, and doing what you love. It was an experience I will never forget, and I am sure the students won't forget it either.
