“Do you love music? Would you like to introduce your child to the joys of live music?

An exciting and rare chance for your little ones and the family to see and experience excellent quality, live music.

Music is an important element in children’s lives, it can encourage movement, turn-taking, vocal skills and stimulate memory. Most importantly, Kids Gigs is inspiring and FUN!”

 

The first event on Saturday 3 October at Darlington Library, Crown Street, featured the Burbank Street Brass Band.  A New Orleans style jazz brass band made up of top professional musicians from across the area who’ve played with the likes of The Specials, The Jam, Chumbawamba and more.  Bringing the funky sounds of the Mardi Gras carnival to the library with their take on chart hits from all eras like Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 and Pharrell Williams’ Happy as well as New Orleans standards like Bourbon Street Parade and Oh When The Saints.
