Spring means the return of green grass and bright flowers. It also means Farmer Jason is back for another fun-filled kids concert at the Belcourt Theatre! This year’s performance takes place on Saturday, March 4, at 10 a.m.; tickets are $12 ($10 for Belcourt members).
Farmer Jason is the ecologically minded alter-ego of Jason Ringenberg of Jason and the Scorchers. Ringenberg drew on his own farming background in 2002 to create the character in order to teach children about farm life and the wonders of nature.
The concert at the Belcourt Theatre will be a mix of sing-alongs and dancing. It’s just Farmer Jason performing solo with his acoustic guitar, drawing from folk, country, and rock ’n’ roll with a dash of DIY punk rock. He’ll also discuss nature appreciation, ecology and farm animals.
This event is geared for children ages 2 to 8, but all are welcome to this spirited, high-energy performance!
Farmer Jason has three records and a DVD to his credit, as well as “It’s a Farmer Jason,” an Emmy-winning short video shown on several public television stations around the country. His records have won numerous awards, including the Parents’ Choice Gold Award and the Los Angeles Times’ Children’s Record of the Year list.
