Free Concerts for the Whole Family
For over 20 years KPBX Kids' Concerts have been bringing different genres of music and performances to generations of children. These family concerts are at the heart of the station's mission to provide music awareness and entertainment to our listening region, which compliments our on-air programming. Eight free one-hour concerts are held throughout the year at rotating venues. At each concert, attendees may be treated to a mix of music and historical information. Each KPBX Kids' Concert highlights a musical style. Past concerts have featured classical, jazz, big band, folk, bluegrass, latin, calypso, reggae, klezmer, rockabilly, and lots more.
KPBX Kids' Concerts Turn Twenty!
BIG BLUEGRASS BIRTHDAY
featuring Big Red Barn
Friday, June 21, 2013 - noon to 1pm
The Bing Crosby Theater
Event Donors: Camp Fire Inland Northwest, Numerica Credit Union, Rocket Bakery, Windsong School
KPBX Kids’ Concerts is turning 20, and Spokane Public Radio is celebrating in a big bluegrass way with a free concert, goodies, and fun. Everyone is invited to head down to the Bing Crosby Theater on Friday, June 21, from noon to 1 pm to join the celebration. Big Red Barn will pick, grin, and play their way through an infectious hour-long set of music that ranges from jug band tunes, classic bluegrass, repurposed blues songs, and kids’ sing-alongs. BRB is: Kevin Brown, mandolin; Charley Gurche, banjo and resonator guitar; guitarist Ken Glastre; and bassist Patrick Klausen. SPR will be giving away Rocket Bakery cookies and Numerica string backpacks to all of the kids. Idaho Forest Products Commission has generously donated seedling trees, which the station will be handing out after the show. SPR’s Big Bluegrass Birthday can be enjoyed by everyone on your family tree -- from gram and gramps to sister Sue and cousin Jeb.
