Mr. Harley: Kids Concert for Children of All Ages
- September 19, 2022
Harley Smith, better known as Mr. Harley, is coming back to Maine from his new home in Florida to present a fun and educational children’s concert at the Brunswick UU Church, 1 Middle Street, on October 2nd at 3 pm. The church’s Concerts for a Cause series raises money for local charities. This proceeds from this year’s concerts will benefit the Brunswick Area Teen Center and Maine Family Planning.
Harley Smith is very well-known in central Maine as a children’s musician better known as Mr. Harley. He has been entertaining kids of all ages up and down the East Coast for almost 2 decades. He Studied Jazz at University of Maine at Augusta and got his professional start as a jazz-rock drummer with adult audiences, but he is best known for his energetic shows for children at libraries, museums, fairs, schools, and birthday parties.
Harley Smith has an uncanny ability to connect with his young audience – and their parents and grandparents. Many of his songs call for audience participation, asking the kids to sing along or dance like frogs or slither like snakes. And while the kids are enjoying songs about dinosaurs and pirates and bananas, the grown-ups are enjoying songs that share the sounds of jam bands, ska bands, or even disco bands. Smith’s songs also tend to be educational.
You may be a fan of Mr. Harley and don’t even know it. Maybe you were watching the NBC’s Today show the morning they featured Mr. Harley singing “The Sneeze Song.” Or perhaps you’ve seen the viral commercial that features Mr. Harley singing “Blue Shirt.”
Mr. Harley has released three albums, Toast and Jelly, Blue Shirt, and Just Peel It which are all available on iTunes.
This would be a great concert to enjoy with your kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, or a friend and raise money for 2 important causes at the same time.
Tickets: $10 Adults, $5 Children, $25 Family (2 adults max)
Available at the church office (Tues-Fri, 10 am-4 pm) or online at https://ticketstripe.com/mrharley
