Justin Roberts, a nationally recognized singer-songwriter of children’s music, will perform at Trinity Day School in Solebury at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 4 – a day when New Hope-Solebury schools are not in session.
Roberts appears with fellow Not Ready for Naptime band member Liam Davis. The two have been making their way from Wisconsin to Virginia, and decided to pause for an impromptu stop at Trinity Day School, say promoters.
“Justin Roberts is an award-winning recording artist with a following of many small feet,” they say. Roberts also carries some musical creds with adults, his work having been compared at one time or another to the likes of Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Fountains of Wayne.
An Ohio native, Roberts began his music career in the Minneapolis-based indie-rock band Pimentos for Gus. The band released three albums in the 1990s. Roberts earned cash during the daytime hours as a preschool teacher, and began writing and performing for his students. His college buddy Liam Davis, a music producer, heard the tunes, and pushed Roberts to record them professionally.
On March 4, the two will stick around for photos and autographs after the show, say promoters. Tickets are $12, and may sell out quickly. Doors open at 3:30 p.m., and the concert starts at 4 p.m. Call Trinity Day School for more information at (215) 297-5510.
Trinity Day School is located at 6587 Upper York Road (at the intersection of Sugan and Upper York roads) in Solebury.
