Torgan, Keith Little Kids Little Songs Life Skills- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
Little Kids Little Songs is a fabulous introduction to live music, comedy and theatre for children ages two through eight and practically guarantees a wonderful time. While it's true that Little Kids Little Songs has funny and extremely interactive songs and stories from beginning to end the best thing about it is how it addresses the fear of participation and very gently gets the most timid children playing, laughing and singing before the show is even half way through. Soft, sweet, playful and funny - the original music and storytelling of Keith Torgan and the virtuosity of flutist Barbara Siesel will tickle not only the newest and youngest of audience members but anyone within earshot! Ideal for ages 2-8

Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
An inter-active trip around the world through multi-cultural music and imagination. Audience members will play a ten foot Tibetan trumpet, the steel drum, dance and do the limbo to calypso music played on the electric guitar, and sing a reggae song. They will also learn some hula moves and dance to the Hawaiian steel guitar. Stories from far away lands that teach good moral lessons are told and accompianied by authentic instruments. These include the Turkish saz, Japanese shakuhachi flute, and Hawaiian lap steel guitar. Assorted percussion instruments brought back from my travels can be handed out as well. This program is truly one of a kind and all instruments are authentic and brought back by myself from the country of origin. The music is real and not dumbed down in any way, and I have found that this program always thrills, entertains, and educates audiences. Its perfect for ages 3-11.

!, Spook Handy Songs of the Great Depression and Today History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
When the Great Depression hit, a whole new genre of American folk music was born. Songs about the Dust Bowl, the Great Migration, bread lines and soup kitchens, the New Deal and times of triumph and struggle circulated throughout labor camps, churches and family gatherings. These songs depicted down-to-earth everyday realities of the American laborer and farmer, the hungry and the industrious, centuries old traditions and the transition to a new modern society. It can be surprising how many of these old songs speak of challenges we face today and how new songs written about today's America can so resemble the songs of the Great Depression. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

Booking, Unbound Marc Black - American Children Music,
Other
I’ve developed a program that’s perfect for kids and grownups alike. I began developing it when my kids were very young. I had the idea to create a CD that featured lots of the great musicians singing songs their parents had sung to them, or that they sang to their kids. And, some cases, wrote for their kids. The resulting CD, American Children, was honored as the ‘American Library Association’s Best Children’s CD of the year.’ The CD featured performances by Richie Havens, Taj Mahal, John Sebastian, Peter Schickele (PDQ Bach), Maria Muldaur and many more. The stuff I write about in this genre ranges from a tune about Ziggy, my wacky wire haired fox terrier, to my love of coffee and baseball, and the importance of picking up litter. I also mix in songs from my childhood (in the sixties) for a program the family can all enjoy. In addition, I’m also available for expressive songwriting classes with kids of all ages. I love doing this!
