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 shows are every month, September through June, on Saturday mornings, broadcast live on the radio with a live audience. 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.

Grateful Dead for Kids w/Ed Hough’s Dead Collective at Power Plant Live Oct. 2 in Baltimore

We are thrilled to bring back our most popular Saturday Morning Tunes show to one of our favorite venues, Ed Hough’s Dead Collective at Power Plant Live!

Ed Hough puts together some of the best touring musicians on the jam band scene, and that’s true once again, as the lineup for this show is Ed Hough, Cris Jacobs, Kirk Kness, Sunny Trippel, Tim Pruitt and John Butte!

This show is presented by Race Pace Bicycles.

This is an outdoor show, in Power Plant Live’s plaza, which has a partly covered stage area and tons of room to spread out and dance. Even so, in light of the uptick in Covid numbers, we will be limiting the capacity to less than half of what Power Plant Live’s plaza typically holds. Watch the video on this page — even our Phish show at Power Plant Live in 2019 (which had a TON of people there) families still had space to spread out.

We hope to see you, your kids (and maybe your parents?) at Power Plant Live Oct. 2.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the music starts at 10 a.m. at Power Plant Live, 34 Market Place in Baltimore. Made possible in part by Garrison Forest SchoolWhiting-Turner Contracting CompanyLumina Solar, (cool) progeny and Clipper City Capital of Ameriprise Financial.

Artwork by the Baltimore artist and children’s book author Kevin Sherry. The new book in his “Squidding Around” series just came out.

About the series

Since Saturday Morning Tunes launched in January 2017, more than 8,000 different parents and kids from all across Maryland and beyond have come to one of our concerts for the whole family. We had 1,200 parents and kids at our Phish show alone!

NEW: you can now purchase gift tickets which are good for any of our upcoming kids’ concerts. Because why not give someone an experience instead of a thing? You’ll receive e-tickets which can be printed and presented at the front door.

**Family Four Packs are good for any combination of four people. Also, even though it’s free for them, please be sure to reserve a spot for your under 2-year-old. so we have an accurate head count.**

Tickets are a donation to WTMD, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and are non-refundable. By purchasing tickets, you also become a WTMD member! Proceeds from this concert help support children’s programming on-air and in our community.
