Come to the Downtown Waterville Farmer’s Market at Head of Falls in Waterville on Thursday, July 15, for the Earth Jams concert with award-winning children’s performer, Matt Loosigan!
Jump on the Song Toboggan and sing-a-long with Matt Loosigian of Earth Jams. Matt is a Brunswick, Maine-based folk singer, guitarist, and songwriter specializing in playful, funny songs about ecology and being green. Join him as he works his musical magic in this interactive and fun music show.
Loosigian has the unique ability to capture and keep the attention of children from babies through elementary ages. Inspired by Matt’s incredibly dynamic voice and charismatic performance style, participants will sing, play, and dance along as this musical wizard pulls giggles out of his guitar. As he performs it’s clear that Loosigian has a great love of music, fun, and children, and wants to transmit that love to the families.
“I believe that every child has a seed of music inside. If we nurture those seeds by teaching them to exercise their musical muscles from a young age they will blossom into enthusiastic musical beings. I demonstrate how easy and fun it is to make your own music. Hooray!”
Loosigian has been doing that around Maine and New England for 6 years. With a deep background in choral, solo, and a cappella singing, today he performs school assemblies, family concerts, and leads workshops for teachers. In 2009, he released a solo album, Hungry for the Sun, that received a Kids Music Award, with songs about ecology and being green. He is also the director of the Earth Jams chorus for ages 5-8 in Freeport and teaches Music Together classes in Brunswick and Yarmouth.
