Crofton Library To Host 'By the Sea'
The summer reading program offers a performance by singer-songwriter and oceanographer Bridgette Michaels on July 17 at at 1:30, 3:30 and 7 p.m.
Do your kids like the beach, gnarly pirates and chatty clownfish? Then head to the Crofton Library on Tuesday for its summer reading program to see an ocean-themed performance.
The library will host three shows on Tuesday at at 1:30, 3:30 and 7 p.m.
Singer-songwriter and oceanographer Bridgette Michaels will offer some marine biology lessons and tips on conservation.
Joined by drummer and partner Dawn Madak, the duo sings sea-related songs, including a few originals. They also incorporate a conversation with two puppet clownfish—Barry and Larry—into their routine, and children act out as pirates and jellyfish as well as other sea creatures.
"This is what we do," Michaels said. "We just hope the kids have fun, learn to take care of the ocean and learn about the environment."
Michaels was born in Jamaica and grew up in Trinidad. She studied oceanography in Miami before moving to Annapolis.
Michaels and Madak perform together regularly in the Annapolis and Baltimore area, bringing ocean-themed and Caribbean music at events for both kids and adults.
If you can't make it to the Tuesday event in Crofton, the "By the Sea" show will stop at more libraries in Anne Arundel County in July. Check the Anne Arundel County Public Library website for more information.
