Val McKee plays music for kids in the Best Video Film & Cultural Center parking lot on Saturday morning, June 4, at 10:30 AM.
Val McKee is a writer, musician, and teacher of both. While Val fronts the band “Junebug Saddle” and has been lucky enough to share a stage or two with some of the area’s finest musicians, she is far more popular with the toddler and preschool audience.
To see just how many little friends Val has made in her time teaching preschool and Music Together, join her for a trip to Stop & Shop and wait for the inevitable toddler squeal down an aisle “It’s MISS VAL!” According to Val, being a children’s musician in New Haven is the greatest version of rock star status–like an adorable, fun-sized Beatlemania.
A Tennessee native and mom of three boys, Val’s performances are full of folk and children’s music classics, with plenty of play, education, and humor —heavy on the silly.
Suggested donation is $5-10 per family but nobody will be turned away for lack of funds.
Parking available behind Best Video and on Thornton Street.
