2017 National Heritage Award winner and the godmother of children’s music, Ella Jenkins turns 93 years old this summer.
She’s got a new CD out on Smithsonian-Folkways and was recently honored at the Old Town Schoool for her work.
Now we’ll celebrate with a concert at Navy Pier on Sunday, August 6th, 4-5:00 pm.
Join Ella Jenkins and a host of musicians as they share her music. You can hear Bucky Halker, Barb Silverman, Erin Flynn and the Old Town children’s choir, Lanialoha Lee Sumberg, Jason McInnes, Chris Walz, and more.
