Babushka's Way Massachusetts-based Russian folk club Ivolga ("Oriole") is a group of Russian-speaking adults and children studying Russian folk traditions, crafts and singing styles. The group will share their knowledge of old holiday rituals and songs, talk about the ways Russian children lived, played, and dressed in the old days, and will engage the audience in some traditional games.
Babushka's Way is cosponsored by the New England Chapter of Families for Russian and Ukrainian Adoption (FRUA). Families with children adopted from Russia, Ukraine, and neighboring countries are encouraged to attend, to meet New England Chapter families and to learn about FRUA, a national parent-to-parent network offering hope, help and community for families with children adopted from Eastern Europe.
Seating is limited for both presentations and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
