Richter, Chip Imagination, Creativity and Inspriation Music,
Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Singer-Songwriter Chip Richter’s Family Concert at The Library has become a favorite among librarians and families because it's “more fun than a Kid (or Parent) should be allowed to have!” It’s the kind of high-energy fun and audience participation naturally found in a live performance all in the wonderful learning environment of the public library. This is live music, no accompaniment tracks, so anything can happen! With his guitar, banjo, harmonica, stories and original tunes Chip connects with the kids and adults, creating moments to remember. Also don't forget to check out the Librarians Resource Page where you can download some of Chip's music absolutely free of charge. Librarians are using these mp3s and the Teacher's Tips to compliment story-times with children.

Within the frame story of Jack sailing on his cabbage (based on an old story dreamed up by Pete Seeger long ago), Story Laurie takes listeners on an imaginary journey that begins in your library’s backyard.
