Free Concert!

Laura Veirs and the Tumble Bees

Laura Tumble Bees 2 Chad 2

Sunday February 26th, 2:00pm

Admission is free!

Rain or shine – in the case of rain an acoustic show will take place in our indoor studio

Join acclaimed singer-songwriter Laura Veirs and her great band The Tumble Bees as they plays songs off her debut family music album Tumble Bee. This great free show will feature colorful costumes, an interactive performance style, and fun for children of all ages. Don’t miss it! Here's a sneak peak of Laura and the Tumble Bees debut CD:

“Most new parents are a bit lost when faced with the dilemma of weeding out the good children’s music from the bad. For musician couples, like singer/songwriter Laura Viers and her producer/husband Tucker Martine, the solution is simple; make your own. On Tumble Bee, Viers and Martine, along with special guests Béla Fleck, Basia Bulat, Colin Meloy (the Decemberists), and Jim James (My Morning Jacket), explore some of the genre’s oldest tunes, including work songs (“Jump Down Spin Around”), Civil War tunes (“Soldier’s Joy”), and even a calypso (“Jamaica Farewell”). Each cut is tastefully arranged and never cloying, and Viers’ simple, honest delivery helps to keep the mood fun, yet stable and sweet, without the inevitable sugar rush.” – All Music

“Laura’s folk songs for children prove that the best children’s music never gets old.” – singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens

Tumble Bee is a welcome addition to contemporary children’s music, not only because it’s sufficiently involving to appeal to adults, but also because it further demonstrates that songs for kids don’t have to be cloying or sanitized.” – Pitchfork
