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.

!, Spook Handy Ground Breaking Troubadours History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Spook Handy has been called “a modern day troubadour in the style of Pete Seeger and Phil Ochs.” In fact, Spook’s style of acoustic guitar, harmonica and singing fits right in with the Ground Breaking Troubadours of the 20th Century – Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Peter Paul and Mary, Phil Ochs and others – who paved the path for thousands of acoustic songwriters and folk musicians to follow. This program tells the history of America through songs that were often the first of their kind. Many of the songs in this program and the stories behind them were taught to Spook by his mentor Pete Seeger.
$501- $1000
!, Spook Handy American Folk Songs for the Whole Family History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
This program is simple. Let’s make sure our kids know some of the treasures of American Folk Music. We’ll sing old favorites like “This Land is Your Land”, “If I had a Hammer”, “I’ve been Working on the Railroad”, “She’ll be coming Around the Mountain” and maybe some newer songs. If the children don’t already know a song we’ll take the time to teach them. Parents are encouraged to sit with their children and help them learn the songs. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year. Visit www.spookhandy.com for more info on the artist and other programs and workshops.

Foreman, Jon The Defibrillators Band Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Aging Baby Boomers now have a band whose music reflects their refusal to grow old gracefully. As pioneers of Senior Citizen Rock and Blue-Haired Blues, The Defibrillators poke good-natured fun at the foils and foibles of aging in their contagious blues-based rock originals. Billing themselves as “the World’s Oldest Boy Band”. Their high caliber of musicianship is offset only by their subtle theatrics during live performances. Their eponymous CD has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, Newsday, LI Press, Good Times, LI Entertainment, Aural Fix and other local press. All the good fun aside, The Defibrillators have rightfully been called a Super group by the press. The members of the band are all highly accomplished musicians who have made their mark on the music scene.

Willis, Audrey Songs of Christmas Past with mondoRAJ History,
Music
Music is the background of our lives. It colors our world and helps to unite us as people. It also reminds us where we've been and how we've overcome during troubled times and how we've thrived in good times. mondoRAJ performs songs from several decades. Including songs influenced by our troops being overseas. How these songs attempted to give us hope for a return to normalcy. While other songs existed just to bring us joy. We play a selection Holiday songs performed in a jazzy style. Songs may include White Christmas, I'll be Home for Christmas, Deck the Halls... and many more! We can add more children oriented songs based on the number of children in the audience. But we also remember than anyone can be a child at heart.
