The Roundup -

Jack & Kitty Return For Special Concert

As Part of Libraries Rock! Summer Reading Program

 

The Emmy Award winning Jack and Kitty.

Back by popular demand Jack and Kitty will perform live in concert on Friday, July 6 at 1 p.m. The free concert will be held at the Sidney-Richland County Library as part of the library's summer reading program, Libraries Rock!

Jack and Kitty are Emmy Award winning vaudevillian songsters – playing family friendly jug band folk music influenced by old blues, ragtime and jazz from the 1920s and 1930s. On their website Jack and Kitty say the following about themselves:

"Kitty's uncle is reggae legend Bunny Wailer (of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame) and Jack's babysitter was oddball ukulele weirdo Tiny Tim ("Tip Toe through the Tulips"). Our music is a lot like if Bunny and Tiny had a duo: fun, strange and entertaining! One reviewer called us "Leon Redbone meets Alicia Keys or Tom Waits meets Beyoncé."

Four of Jack and Kitty's original songs can be heard in the 2017 Oscar nominated film "The Florida Project" (directed by Sean Baker) which stars Willem Dafoe. The duo also co-created and co-hosted a kids TV series, which aired on over 150 PBS member stations nationwide and in 175 countries on the AFN Family Network. The series was produced independently while living in Nashville, Tennessee.

Jack and Kitty now call Minneapolis, Minnesota their home. In addition to performing music, they also love video and film production. They have their own online video editing company.
