Kindie artist to play free show in Chapel Hill Wednesday
Posted July 14, 2013
Kindie music singer-songwriter Steve Weeks will perform a free show at Chapel Hill's University Mall on Wednesday.
The Colorado-based artist and South Carolina native has three tracks that have reached No. 1 on Sirius XM's Kids Place Live.
Here's a bit more about Weeks from his website: "Weeks has long been known for his richly layered acoustic-based songs, experimentation with unusual percussion (including cans, pots and pans, even tinker-toys) and diverse musical styles that range from reggae to bluegrass to folk-hop. But at the heart of his music is always an outlandish story or a touching tale: The title track from Weeks’ new album, for instance, features a dandelion who just wants to be considered a flower instead of a weed."
According to his website, Weeks started writing independent kids music (AKA kindie) when he began writing a series of songs for his own children's preschool.

The show is 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Wednesday. It's hosted by Kidzu Children's Museum.
