Super Saturday with Mo Phillips

Join us at Super Saturday with Mo Philips. This is a must for kids with music like you have never heard before! Its goofball music played well with a genuine sense of wonder and appreciation for the wackiness inherent in every single child.  His songs and song titles make no sense on the surface but kids gravitate strongly to his comedy-folk songs about being the “Champion of Sleepy Time,” a sultry analysis of what: worth swapping in our school “Lunchbox,” and falling in love with a couch named “Maria”.  It is impossible not to be charmed by the oddness of it all. This will be super fun for all the family.
