New England’s most beloved children’s musician, Judy Pancoast, will bring the fun to Southwest Harbor Public Library during a special performance for the Library’s 2014 Family Concert Series on Thursday evening, August 7 at 6:30pm.
Pancoast crafts clever songs with infectious melodies that delight the young and the young at heart, as evidenced by the 2011 Grammy Award nomination for Best Children’s Album for her one-of-a-kind CD, Weird Things Are Everywhere, A Reading Road Trip with Judy Pancoast. Judy’s outrageously fun family performances have created a ruckus throughout the USA wherever children and families gather. She’s performed twice in concert at the request of President Clinton. The organizers of the New York City fundraiser for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation and Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Family Street Fair know the effect she has on audiences and have asked Judy to return year after year. The children at the Nyumbani Orphanage in Kenya experienced the joy of working with Judy when she traveled twice to Nairobi for week-long songwriting workshops. The songs are available on a fundraising CD for the orphanage, which Judy will be selling after the performance. All are invited to the Library to hear Judy’s original, interactive songs.
This program is free. For more information, call the Library at 244-7065
