Music is an integral part of life -- and a way to tell stories -- for
Jim Kerr and Denise Martin and their daughter, Amanda. When the family
performs together at venues like the Saturday Market and CIRI’s annual
Potlatch, they are engaging in a discussion -- a musical discussion.
Music for the Potlatch
About once a year our family plays fiddle music for the Cook Inlet Region Corporation's (CIRI) Potlatch, an annual gathering of Alaskan Natives. It is one of the things I do to stay in touch with my Native heritage.
