Mary Lambert Performance
Vermilion Public Library hosted ‘Sing Out - Summer Fun’ by Juno Award nominee, Mary Lambert, on July 12.
Families tapped and clapped along, and even helped out on stage during some of the familiar favourite children’s songs. Lambert also performed original songs that shared some of her comical, personally lived experiences.
“I’ve had the best time meeting the families in these communities; I love children, music, and performing so it’s a good mix. I started when my children were toddlers, and I feel like I probably enjoy it even more now,” said Lambert.
She had performed in Innisfree in the morning, Mannville later in the afternoon, as well as Spruce Grove and Stony Plain the day before. Following these shows, she was going to be headed to Ontario to perform next.
“The Library’s Summer Reading Program aims to keep children reading and has a literacy component to our plan of service, so we really like to focus on pre-school aged children. It is meant to keep children actively engaged in learning through the summer so they are not sliding back,” said Programming Coordinator, Sheila Heit.
Incorporating the children in her show with follow-along actions and sound effects, they were able to have fun and connect with her music. Families enjoyed the colourful show and had the opportunity to purchase some of her 11 CDs, two concert DVDs, and two children’s books.
Lambert performs at libraries, schools, and agricultural fairs across the country, and for more information, you can visit www.marylambertmusic.com.
