Thursdays at 6pm: June 5th and June 12th
Each year when the weather is warm, the Friends of Washington Market Park produces a series of concerts on Thursdays. The bands are family friendly – some write for kids, some write for kids of all ages, and some are kids!
Bring a blanket, a picnic and enjoy music under the summer sky in Washington Market Park at Greenwich and Duane streets. Concerts this year will be on June 13th, June 27th and September 19th at 6 p.m.
June 5th – Princess Katie and Racer Steve
June 12th – Brady Rymer
Thank you as always to HRP Mamas, Tribeca Citizen and Tribeca Tribune for helping us spread the word.
See you at the park!
Brady Rymer and The Little Band That Could…www.bradyrymer.com
Grammy nominated Brady Rymer’s down-home, foot stomping rootsy tunes resonate through American culture, bringing an honest, joyful spirit to music for all generations. “His music has a rock ‘n’ roll heart,” wrote The New York Times. Combining a feel-good R&B foundation with traditional acoustic arrangements and a scoop of sunny 70s optimism, he’s created a modern American roots sound for families everywhere.
Brady’s new CD, “Love Me for Who I Am”, was inspired by his performances for children with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and related conditions. Families of children affected by disabilities will welcome these songs as anthems that celebrate their experiences, but every child will find something to relate to in this collection. The songs, written with children of all abilities in mind, invite appreciation of our differences, while shedding light on just how much we all have in common. Songs like “Picky Eater,” “I Don’t Like Change,” “Who Wants to Wear Shoes?” and “Keep Your Wiggle Alive” offer a bright, positive way of celebrating life amid challenges, and will encourage dancing, singing and general merry-making in all kids and their families.
