This Thursday afternoon, the Southborough Library is bringing in children’s entertainer Steve Blunt, a self described

part-time music teacher, part-time singer/storyteller whose job is more full-time fun than most grown-ups are allowed to have.

His website pitches his “Rockin’ Sing-Along!” program:

Shake it up, baby–at the library! Award-winning children’s musician, Steve Blunt, delivers a little rock ‘n’ roll & lots of fun for families with kids of all ages.

He’s sure to top the charts with a brand new hit single for summer reading 2018, “Libraries Rock–Let’s Rock ‘n’ Roll & Read!” This highly interactive presentation fosters musical participation in a variety of modes: singing, listening, clapping, fingerplay, ASL, foreign language & large motor movement–because kids who make music make rockin’ readers. And there’s always a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on when Steve passes out shaker eggs for all to play!

Meanwhile, this seasoned library performer sings and plays guitar, harmonica, djembe drum, low brass horn & more, providing exposure to a surprising assortment of instruments & styles–in a fun, upbeat musical celebration for the whole family.

The concert will take place in the Library’s upper main level at 3:00 pm on August 9th. Sponsored by the Friends of the Southborough Library, it’s free and open to the public. No registration necessary.

Updated (8/8/18 7:34 am): I somehow got the time very mixed up. The concert will be at 3:00 pm – not late morning as I originally posted.
