Program description: After 20 years of programs, here are the 10 most fun, participatory (even a bit athletic!) kids' songs Tom’s been able to find - all in one program! In keeping with the “Libraries Rock!” theme, he includes lots of encouragement of the kids’ lifelong participation in music, reading, and library usage. He performed 52 programs during the Summer Reading season of 2017, accompanying himself on guitar, banjo, and a drum machine to keep things nice and upbeat. He’s added beautiful slides and cool facts about area animals (visuals… like a real rock show!). Tom can usually be booked for $275 with no mileage fee ($250 each for within 125 miles or for 3 or more booked together) - please see below. Dozens of references available. ¬ ‘Tom is a wonderfully engaging performer... sure to raise even the most reticent out of their seat! We 'howled at the moon, sang a wild thing tune', and wanted more!’ - Nicole Carner, Former Library Director, Pember Library, Granville, NY. ‘Tom was amazing!! We all enjoyed his performance.
