10:00am

Swing Peepers (until 11:00am)

The Swing Peepers will perform at the library on August 1st at 10 AM for children ages 4-12 and their families. This year they explore the realm of science from geology to astronomy through songs and improvisational stories. While their gears turn and wild ideas sprout, their symbiosis with the audience ferments and bubbles over. Ever inventive, spontaneous and responsive to kids, John and Matthew take families on a fun and participatory journey through the world of science, nature and discovery. Instrument strummed, swung, and tapped include: guitar, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, ukulele and accordion. Come sing, move, fizz and boom along with the Swing Peepers!
