More on WHO:
Nominated by Nick Jr. and Go City kids as one of the city's top music programs, City Stomp Live at Dizzy's on Fifth was named Best Place to Rock Out While Having Dinner by Time Out New York Kids last month. Comprised of five veteran musicians, several of whom teach the City Stomp music classes held in multiple locations around Brooklyn, City Stomp is known for its rock versions of children's classic melodies and songs that celebrate the sights and sounds of New York City. Concerts and classes often weave in locally influenced cultural music -- Jewish folk music, Latin, Caribbean, Irish -- children might hear in the city.
Accompanied by her own guitar and percussionist Abby Levin, Shelton will play her original and classic pop-folk music with lyrics that range from silly to serious and feature characters such as sleeping lions, juicy jellyfish and slithering snakes. Popular with parents and kids alike, her expressive vocals have entertained at the White House Easter Egg Roll and Tree Lighting ceremony at Lincoln Center. Her CDs and DVD have won awards from Kids First, Nappa, Children's Music Web and Parent's Choice.
