Bay Area Folk Singer and Her Group to Perform Interactive Children’s Concert on June 22, in Palo Alto

LOS ALTOS, CA. (April 25, 2018) — Folk musician Kathy Sherman and her band Hey Mom! will perform a free, family-friendly interactive concert Friday, June 22, at Mitchell Park in Palo Alto.

Part of the Friday night summer concert series at the Magical Bridge Playground, located at Mitchell Park, 3700 Middlefield Road in Palo Alto, Sherman and Hey Mom! will perform from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Sherman has been a professional folk musician for 44 years and a music teacher for nine. She performs in three different folk bands and has released six recordings.

Her latest release is an 18-song children’s singalong album, “Let’s Sing!” which features such all-time favorite sing-alongs such as “The Hokey Pokey,” “She’ll Be Comin’ ’Round the Mountain,” “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad,” “How Much is That Doggie in the Window,” and “Teddy Bear’s Picnic.”

The album also has an accompanying “Let’s Sing!” songbook, which includes all of the songs on “Let’s Sing!,” as well as selected songs from Hey Mom!’s “Listen to Your Mama” and “Singing on a Star.”

Sherman recently won a Parents’ Choice Recommended award for “Let’s Sing,” as well as a glowing review:

“Singer and multi-instrumentalist Kathy Sherman welcomes little ears with her renditions of folk and children’s songs, inviting listeners to play and sing along. These 18 tracks include fresh offerings of such traditional fare as ‘I Had a Rooster,’ ‘I’ve Been Working on the Railroad,’ and ‘She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain,’ as well as Dale Marxon’s ‘Waltzing with Bears,’ Peter Alsop’s ‘I Am a Pizza,’ Tom Paxton’s ‘The Marvelous Toy,’ Tom Chapin and John Forster’s ‘Bedtime Round,’ and more. Sherman’s happy mix of tunes is made even happier with the voices of her Good Folk Kids singers.”

In addition to Hey Mom!, Sherman is also member of the Good Folk Collective, the Greek folk duo The Plaka Band. She has recorded and released six albums with the three groups.

About Kathy Sherman
Kathy Sherman started her professional music career at age 15, playing Greek music in clubs, restaurants, festivals , and concerts. She put down her bouzouki, the mandolin-like instrument central to modern Greek music, long enough to earn a BMus in classical guitar performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. She was a member of the Electric Guitar Quartet, a classical / comedy group that opened for such guitar luminaries as Leo Kottke, Jorma Kaukonen, John Hartford, The Great Guitars (Barney Kessel, Charlie Byrd, and Herb Ellis) and Free Flight.

Kathy’s current music experiences include Greek folk music with long-time friend and fellow musician, Notis Contoplianos in their group, The Plaka Band. Notis and Kathy have two extraordinary CDs, New Songs of Old Athens (selected for Grammy consideration for best World Music Album), and A Time to Sing, A Time to Dance, a rollicking collection of favorite Greek dance music. For more information about The Plaka Band, please check out their website, ThePlakaBand.com. Kathy also plays classical mandolin for orchestras who have the occasional need for one.
