The Berkeley Public Library, in partnership with the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention, presents the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention's Kid's Show!

Families and music lovers of all ages are welcome. This year our guest is Piedmont Blūz Acoustic Duo, made up of Valerie (guitar) and Benedict Turner (washboard, percussion),  ambassadors of Country Blues music and the Piedmont style of fingerpicking. Piedmont Blūz's mission is to introduce this unique aspect of African American culture through performing and teaching. As 2018 inductees into the New York Blues Hall of Fame, this husband-and-wife duo feel that "there are stories to tell, people to remember, and things that must be said" so, in addition to tickling your ears with delightful music, they weave a bit of history into the presentation of each song.

*This program will be outdoors at the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park (at the fountain), and will be held in place of our Farmer's Market Storytime that morning. Come join us! **Bring a blanket or chairs to relax and enjoy the show! **
