SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - The Library’s Summer Programming moved to the Senior Center last week for a performance by Mr. Kurt Gallagher.  The performance attracted a near full house.  Although, Kurt Gallagher and his amazing bubble machine were a great hit, the house was really brought down by the kids in the audience that came on stage to perform.

Attendees Tatiana and Maddie performed a duet of “Let it Go” from Frozen.  South Plainfield’s newest performer “Emily” came on stage to let the audience know she was five years old, and she knew what to do on stage because she had a Minnie Mouse microphone.  The evening had everyone in the audience participating.

Mr. Kurt Gallagher (www.kurtgallagher.com) has been making music with kids every day for 20 years. He does programs for schools, libraries, camps & various organizations. His presentations are educational, entertaining, engaging & fun! He's on a lifelong journey to show children that music is made by people not by machines. Kurt encourages kids to make as much music as possible during performances as he invites them to clap, slap, shake, spin, stomp & sing along. Time flies as Kurt does songs, stories and gags with his guitar, ukulele, jaw harp, slide whistle, lumberjack puppets & other musically silly stuff.
