89.3 KPCC  Crawford Family Forum: 
Music for Kids (and Their Grown-Ups): Lisa Loeb, Aaron Nigel Smith, and Mista Cookie Jar

July 27 at 10:30 am, I will be part of a panel and on-air concert about family music on 89.3 KPCC. The panel will feature myself as well as these two extremely talented family music artists:  Lisa Loeb (yes, the Lisa Loeb who sings, "Stay") and Aaron Nigel Smith.  I am fans of both musicians -- they go above and beyond as artists and bridge builders in the community. Check out this fabulous TED Talk by Lisa Loeb and this video about Aaron Nigel Smith's One World Chorus, Jamaica. It will be hosted by "Take Two" host (and roller derby extraordinaire), Alex Cohen. It's an honor to be on the panel, indeed.

The event will be at the Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena, Ca.  10:00am - Doors Open, 10:30am - Program. Admission is FREE, but RSVPs are required. Click here for details. 
For those not in the area, there will be a live stream here! Video and audio will be archived at as well!
