From “Itsy Bitsy Spider” to the “Bob the Builder” theme song, plus some original pieces such as “Recycle, Recycle,” the Frankford Public Library is again having an interactive musical celebration with singer/songwriter Pete Kedzia, known as “Uncle Pete,” on Wednesday, Feb. 10, from 4 to 5 p.m.
Kedzia – also a composer, musician, entertainer, recording engineer and producer – is a self-described “positive people-person with many years of motivating and mentoring youngsters.”
According to Children’s Librarian Dorothy Fisch, Uncle Pete has been entertaining, mentoring and motivating youngsters for many years and combines humor, dancing, movement and self-expression in his children’s concerts.
“His original songs often have a positive message based on character-building elements, such as inclusion, teamwork, recycling and dreams. He emphasizes that each child should believe in and follow his or her dreams,” said Fisch.
She added that some songs are purely for fun, and some are classic favorites. During each of his performances, Uncle Pete sings, moves and plays his guitar while playing a track, the “Invisible Band,” which has been digitally self-recorded in his studio. His high energy level gets his audience up and moving, too, so it truly is an interactive experience.
“Even the teens join in for some of the dances and to do the Limbo,” added Fisch. “Please join us at the Frankford Library for a wonderful time that will chase away the winter blues,” said Fisch, adding that refreshments will be served.
