Welcome to Saturday Morning Tunes, an award-winning, family friendly concert series!
When we were growing up, kids’ music — let alone kids’ concerts — was pretty lame. Our mission: To present concerts you can enjoy with your kids — not just for your kids. The series launched in Baltimore in January 2017, and we’ve had members of They Might Be Giants, Barry Louis Polisar (who wrote the theme song to “Juno”), Latin Grammy winner 1,2,3, Andres, world music star Falu, Baltimore kids rock stars Milkshake and Baby Beats, and many more. Now you don’t have to pay a sitter to see great live music, and you can take the whole family.
Annapolis, here we come!!
Nov. 2 – Grateful Dead for kids with Ed Hough’s Dead Collective at Maryland Hall
UPDATE: This show is now SOLD OUT! Thank you, and see you at Maryland Hall!!!
We’re thrilled to partner with Maryland Hall to bring Saturday Morning Tunes to Annapolis! If you’re a Grateful Dead fan with young kids, you’ve probably wanted to bring them with you to share your love of this incredible band. Now you can — at Maryland Hall, an Annapolis institution — with Ed Hough’s Dead Collective, some of Baltimore’s best roots and Americana musicians. We’re happy to welcome The Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University as a sponsor for this show!
**Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the show starts at 10 a.m. so you can be home in time for (family) naptime.**
