Nationally known musician-educator Jill Trinka, Ph. D., will be in Chicago to present a family folk song concert for children and their parents. A “dynamic, winsome, and energetic performer and teacher,” Jill sings and plays guitar, autoharp, dulcimer, and banjo, and has entertained audiences throughout the United States and Canada bringing new life to the musical and cultural treasures of American folk music. Her Old Town School of Folk Music concert will feature such songs as “Shoo, Fly,” “The Old Sow,” and “Scrapin' Up Sand,” as well as favorite action songs, including “John, the Rabbit,” “Jim Along, Josie,” and “Teddy Bear” and MORE!
Some of Jill's fondest memories of her coming-of-age years are from the many Saturday mornings she spent as a middle school student playing guitar and singing at the Old Town School of Folk Music on North Ave.
Jill has recorded 7 children's CDs since 1986 (My Little Rooster; Bought Me a Cat; John, the Rabbit; The Little Black Bull; Had a Little Rooster, There's a Hole in the Bucket, and Old Joe Clark) and a DVD, Jill Trinka: The Bass Hall Children's Concerts in Ft. Worth, Texas, all published by Chicago-based G.I.A. Music.
