Tenth Annual Tricycle Music Fest Kicks Off September 30
Free Grammy Music Line Up

San Francisco – San Francisco Public Library proudly announces the 10th Anniversary of the Tricycle Music Fest, welcoming parents and their little ones to free concerts across the City. We are celebrating ten years of Rock! Play! Learn! with Grammy-award winning or nominated performers.  So release the foot break on the stroller and boogie on down to the library to catch a concert with us!

tricycleTricycle Music Fest kicks off with a special concert at our newest branch, Public Knowledge at SFMOMA, on Sunday, September 30. At 11:30 a.m., 2017 Grammy nominee Alphabet Rockers take the stage and drop beats inspiring social justice and youth empowerment.  After the performance, concertgoers can enjoy SFMOMA’s Family Free Day.  Alphabet Rockers will also rock the books at Parkside on October 6th and Bernal Heights on October 7th.

On Sunday, October 14, Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band, the 2013 Latin Grammy winner, will have kids tapping their feet, jumping and hopping to their international sounds.  Jose-Luis Orozco, 2015 Grammy nominee, brings out his guitar on Saturday, October 20th encouraging all to sing and learn Spanish and will delight the audiences at Merced and West Portal branches.

Lastly, due to popular demand, we bring back the Okee Dokee Brothers, 2012 Grammy winners, who bring Americana folk music, banjo included!  Our Sunday morning October 28th show at the Main Library is almost filled (via Eventbrite), but families can see them at the SFMOMA for an afternoon show starting at 3:00 p.m.  Space is limited to seating capacity.

Tricycle Music Fest is proudly sponsored by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library and co-presented by San Mateo County Library. Together we bring the biggest and best kindie rock music to Bay Area families. Because playing is just as important as singing in early childhood learning, we will raffle off one tricycle to a lucky concert goer at each event.  Families, get ready for a hip-shaking, head bopping dance party explosion of indie fresh pop rock beats—only at the library!

For the full 2018 Tricycle Music Fest line-up and to hear sounds of the Grammy performers, go to sfpl.org/tricycle and smcl.org/tricycle.
