Laurie Berkner - The You & Me Tour is coming to Southfield, MI.

That's right....  LAURIE BERKNER IS ON TOUR!

"Laurie Berkner is bigger than Justin Bieber, if you happen to be 4 or 5."
- The New York Times

Children’s music superstar and preschool television favorite Laurie Berkner is performing in a special series of solo concerts in 2013, entitled “The You & Me Tour.”  Says Laurie, "I'm feeling the need to go back to my roots a bit and get back in touch with what it was like to play just myself with my guitar to a room full of kids.  I know that sometimes the youngest kids connect to songs with hand movements, but I tend not to do those simpler songs and a cappella songs with the band.  This gives me a space to sing those songs as well."

Laurie also recently debuted her first-ever animated musical preschool series on the Sprout television channel.  Sing It, Laurie! is the first collaboration between Laurie and Little Airplane Productions, the studio behind hit preschool shows such as Wonder Pets! and Small Potatoes.

A former preschool music teacher by day and indie rocker by night, Laurie Berkner started selling her music over ten years ago out of her living room on her own label, Two Tomatoes Records. The Laurie Berkner Band has received tremendous critical acclaim.  Time Magazine lauded Laurie as “a kind of sippy-cup Sheryl Crow…Berkner inhabits a kid’s curious perspective in her lyrics and pens folk-pop melodies that bear repeated – very repeated – listenings.”  The Wall Street Journal called Laurie “one of the most popular children’s performers in America … Her music is distinctive because it speaks to kids without talking down to them, charming youngsters without boring grown-ups.”

Laurie Berkner - The You & Me Tour is coming to Southfield, MI on November 17th. The concert will take place at Congregation Shaarey Zedek, 27375 Bell Road in Southfield, MI at 11:00 am.  Tickets $15.00; $25.00.
