Event Details

Award-winning musician and author Jim Gill offers more than just a show to watch. Each concert is an opportunity for family play! Jim strums energetic rhythms on his banjo while everyone claps, sings, dances – even sneezes – along to the silly and inspiring musical games he creates. Children, parents, grandparents and EVERYONE is invited to sing and play together!

*This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from Ohio Arts Council and the Crane Group.

About Jim Gill:

Jim Gill is a child development specialist, completing his graduate studies in child development at the Erikson Institute of Chicago with a special emphasis on the study of play. For this reason, each of Jim's recordings and books is created as an opportunity for playful interactions between a child and a caring adult. 

Jim has released seven award-winning CDs of music play for young children that are favorites in family rooms, classrooms and playrooms.  Jim is also the author of two children's books.  His latest, A Soup Opera, is a sing-along opera inspired by concerts that Jim performs with symphony orchestras.  The book received an American Library Association award in 2010.
