Two Of A Kind is David and Jenny Heitler-Klevans -- joined this time by their sons Ari and Jason (who just finished college). Best known for their award-winning children's music, they'll present a "grown-up" concert, adding 4-part "family harmony" plus French horn and trombone. This intimate folk/singer-songwriter concert will include original, traditional and cover songs by the likes of Pete Seeger, Melanie DeMore, Tom Waits, Greg Brown and more, including lots of topical/political material on topics such as climate change, peace and justice, and songs to give you hope in these difficult times.
Two Of A Kind will also be doing a couple of free interactive kids' shows at libraries in the area that week, a Summer Reading Program performance titled Building a Better World featuring songs about books, reading, and making the world a better place. Daytime shows in Butler and New Castle (more details below).
House concert at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30) at our home in Squirrel Hill. Light fare to share (contributions welcome but not expected). Directions and other info will come after you RSVP -- and please do RSVP even if you know your way! RSVP by email to maren dot cooke at gmail dot com with "concert" in the Subject line, with name(s) of attendees -- and/or via the Eventbrite notice that will appear closer to the date, if you're on the email list for Sustainability Salons (email me with "salon" in the Subject line if you'd like to be added!) Suggested donation is $15 (goes to the performers; we won't use Eventbrite tickets but we will be passing the proverbial hat).
