Kids at the Freight programs are supported by DeYoe Wealth Management, with additional support from the Bill Graham Supporting Foundation of the Jewish Community Endowment Fund, and the Friendship Fund.
Furry alligator puppies, run-away socks, ducks on parade and flying children are just a few of the wonders you’ll encounter in Sara Lovell’s fanciful worlds. With two full-length albums of songs for kids and families, it’s apparent that Sara is not so much singing to children as she is reporting back with love from a magical landscape she inhabits.
Whether she is vividly painting an alternate universe or simply describing everyday moments in life, Sara’s authenticity never talks down to children, instead, it invites both kids and their parents to dream and play along with her. The lyrics move easily between whimsical and matter-of-fact, and are set to music that is at once sophisticated and immediately accessible.
Winner of several prestigious awards (including a Parents’ Choice® Gold Award) Lovell also has three critically praised “grown-up” CDs to her credit. She lives in Berkeley with her 8-year-old son who loves to paint his face and dance in front of the mirror. After a long day of child-wrangling, Sara is thrilled when she has enough brain cells left to compose a tune and follow whatever lyric-journey her imagination decides to take her on.
Patchwork Series Host Rudy Trubitt spent five years touring the country with the psychedelic rock-and-roll circus that was The Sippy Cups. He loves the family audience and is delighted to bring outstanding local and national performers to the Freight stage.
