Summer Performances for Young Audiences: Justin Roberts
|When/Where||Tuesday, Jun 25, 2019 11:00am||Hylton Performing Arts Center, Merchant Hall, Science and Technology|
The summer kicks off at the Hylton Center with indie music family favorite Justin Roberts in a concert that captures the joys and struggles of navigating childhood and parenthood. Robert’s rise to musical success sounds like the inspiration for School of Rock—after performing with the indie folk-rock band, Pimentos for Gus, he picked up a teaching gig at a Montessori preschool and began writing and singing songs for his students, who love his sound and message. Since 1997, Roberts has devoted himself to writing and performing family friendly music, and he has earned three Grammy Award nominations, released 12 albums, and appeared on the Today Show and Nick Jr. TV. With hit songs like “Recess,” “Lemonade,” and “Stay-At-Home-Dad,” Roberts is creating a witty, endearing, and relatable soundtrack about family life and growing up. “He has a remarkable ability to see through a child’s eyes... the Judy Blume of kiddie rock,” (New York Times).
