The Historic Old Church is proud to announce our “Little Ears” Music Program for children ages 2-9.
The Historic Old Church, with the help of Johnny and Jason, launches this new concert series on Tuesday, May 7 at 3:30 pm. Performing mostly in and around the Portland area, Johnny Keener and Jason Greene first met in 2001 while working at the Portland Children’s Museum. They’ve teamed up to craft children’s music that is exciting and fun, as well as artistically satisfying for both children and their adults. Johnny and Jason invite kids into the musical process providing them with a positive experience that they won’t forget.
On June 18, we are delighted to present Mo Phillips! Mo performs interactive shows that respect the intelligence of young people with wit and irreverence, without being strictly scatological. This is music built for kids and parents alike. Mo does not dumb down lyrics or melodies for kids to “understand”, and therefore sings about things whole families can appreciate. A fine, distilled blend of Americana, Soul and Blues, while not being afraid of a poppy hook or straight rockin’ out.
Both concerts are free of charge! You won’t want to miss these two fun-filled shows.
