Your kids deserve to hear the sound of a joyful spirit. Your kids deserve to hear Valerie June. She is a unique voice, a welcoming embrace and a bright smile whose music has you skipping and whistling long after her songs are done.
With hair piled in dreadlocks atop her head, free flowing clothes and a magical twinkle in her eyes she takes you on a musical journey from bluegrass to jazz and blues to lullabies, from love songs and ballads to playful sing-a-longs.
She calls it “Organic Moonshine Roots Music” and it speaks to the primal while exuberantly celebrating the optimism of the here-and-now. It works into your heart by way of June’s gentle encouragement and a voice that sometimes twangs, sometimes whispers, occasionally bites and often sounds like a sweet invitation to a ride along a cool Southern river. Banjos, guitars, that sparkling voice and maybe some red or blue cowboy boots accentuate the positive and are guaranteed to nail down the rest of your day to be a good one.
Your kids deserve to hear Valerie June and frolic for a time in her signature world.
She will be the featured artist in the first in a series of “cool concerts for kids (big and small)” presented by Atypcial Arts Presents at the Sun-Ray Cinema in the heart of 5 Points (formerly the 5 Points Theatre).
The concert is FREE. A child MUST accompany adults. Limit two adults per child. Doors open at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 18. The concert begins at 11 a.m. No tickets are required; it’s first come, first served until the theatre is full.
Then grab your children and head out to see her at the Sun-Ray on Saturday. Your kids deserve it. And so do you.
