Songs to Get Everyone Singing!
by Bonnie Lockhart

Members of the Children's Music Network lead a sing-along featuring songs that invite everyone to participate. With sing-alongs, move-alongs, finger plays, and singing games. This is a session for people who love to sing with children of all ages and are looking for songs that invite participation in lots of ways.

Singer/songwriter Bonnie Lockhart combines a love of diverse folk traditions with a gift for lyrics both witty and compassionate, and an active commitment to participatory, community-building music.

From her first recording, made nearly thirty years ago with the anti-war folk rock quartet, The Red Star Singers, to her most recent residencies in Oakland.s public schools, Bonnie shares the transformative power of song through performance, writing, recording and teaching. Her songs have been widely anthologized, and recorded by musicians including Gary Lapow, Charlie King, Robin Flower, and Sarah Pirtle.

Bonnie gives concerts for children and families at schools, libraries, festivals and community centers throughout the west coast. She is past president and long-time board member of The Children.s Music Network. Dreams, Drums, & Green Thumbs, her most recent CD, is an affirmation of Bonnie.s commitment to young children, to the folk traditions that enliven her music, and to the power of communal music making.
