Arrowhead Library System presents the musical one-man show of Jack Pearson, a program for all ages, at 10 a.m. Tuesday, June 17. The event, which is part of the Library’s Summer Reading Program for children, is free of charge and open to the public.
A storyteller and musician, Pearson will wow the audience with an experience of imagination, spirit, folklore and history. He will play songs on all types of instruments including guitar, fiddle, five-string banjo, mandolin, jaw harp, and an assortment of small percussion instruments including his one-and-only amplified toy box lid. It’s a great show that’s appropriate for the entire family!
Pearson has been blending songs and stories professionally for more than 30 years. His recordings have won multiple Parents’ Choice awards. He brings a fun family experience of music and stories that focuses on books and the love of reading. Providing good variety and well-paced participation, he will explain how reading opens the twin doors of information and imagination. Pearson is known for shows that touch old and young alike. The sheer joy of settling down with a good book shines through his very special assembly of tunes and tales.
