Children’s Concert with Dan Bern – Former Mount Vernon Native
Dan Bern is playing in his hometown for the first time! His Facebook profile states: “If you must put me in a box, make sure it’s a big box…” You could try to label that big box as “Americana / Roots / Rock / Folk”, but, that would be missing quite a lot still.
Further in his Facebook profile he states: “Dan Bern is best known for his prolific songwriting and electric live persona. He has released eighteen albums and built a loyal following based on prodigious touring and output of songs in all forms.”
The Washington Post says: “Dan Bern strums drop-dead gorgeous melodies like a demon with his tail on fire; and expresses his love for humankind through scabrous, literary, skeptical rhymes full of hyper articulation and the tormented self-knowledge of the really, really smart.”
NPR says: “With his acoustic guitar and a batch of witty and insightful songs, Dan Bern is rapidly becoming the voice of a new generation of folk music.”
The Uptown Theatre in the First Street Community Center is thrilled to present Dan Bern in the first of two special shows while he is on tour.
This show is on Sat. July 25 at 2 pm is a kids show, $5.00, kids under 5 FREE.
Tickets on sale at CarePro Pharmacy & at the door.
