Singer and storyteller Jack Pearson
Friday, June 19th at 10:00am
Join us for a fun-filled musical celebration of books and imagination!
Jack Pearson describes himself as “. . . a songwriter with one foot in our American folk tradition and the other joyfully lost in the landscape of imagination.” Families are invited to come and experience Jack’s music and story experience of spirit, folklore and history on guitar, fiddle, 5-string banjo, mandolin, dobro and an assortment of small percussion instruments.
We are celebrating the Read to the Rhythm Summer Reading Program and the entire family is welcome to come and enjoy a program revolving around books and imagination. Librarian Becky Walpole, of Park Rapids, Minn., says, “Jack has shared his love of song and story with us for twelve years. Jack is able to make each concert new and exciting and is definitely the highlight of our Summer Reading Program.”
Jack was born in California but spent his growing up years in Alexandria and Minneapolis, Minnesota. He lives with his wife Nancy on the upper Mississippi in Minneapolis and has performed for kids and families in the Upper Midwest and around the country since 1979. He makes good pancakes, loves to read, and wears suspenders a lot.
This performance is free to the public and all are encouraged to come!
