On Saturday, April 18th jazz and poetry collided at G.Willikers! Toy Shop as part of the city's Jazzmouth festival.
Local jazz master Larry Simon and friends entertained families with a live, interactive performance. Guest readers Bruce Pingree and Ayanna Gallant captured the perfect blend of prose and personality with rhythmic recitals for a one of a kind show.
Children were encouraged to keep the beat with egg-shaped maracas and a variety of drums and all guests received a free copy of the book JAZZ ABZ (generously provided by the NH Humanities Council).
It was the perfect family friendly kick-off to what has become one of the premier musical events in the seacoast....JAZZMOUTH!
