Zak Morgan Wednesday, July 27, 10 am
Zak Morgan

With a background in children’s literature plus a GRAMMY® nomination for his kids’ songs, Zak Morgan and his unique brand of children's music delivers songs and poems with wit and charm that inspire and tickle the funny bones of children and adults alike. At last year’s Wacky Wednesdays performance, Zak captured the young audience with his hilarious actions and lyrics.

Morgan sounds a bit like singer Cat Stevens, and his storytelling is an inspired cross between Dr. Seuss-style word games and the sly, edginess of Shel Silverstein. In short, it's children's music that adults can love.

Little Groove

Little Groove performs fun, educational music for children ages infant through eight. Children enjoy being a part of the musical experience, using their bodies and voices to sing along to catchy songs that help them build important motor and social skills.  Children play real instruments such as drums, shakers, and tambourines while they dance, sing, and groove to songs about anything from playtime and sleeptime, to trains, planes, rainbows, ducks, and dogs. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to join in the musical experience too!
