The Bright Siders create music that helps children and families have meaningful conversations about emotions. Founded by award-winning songwriter Kristin Andreassen and Brooklyn-based child psychiatrist Dr. Kari Groff, they have put together a not-to-be-missed program celebrating the life and legacy of Pete Seeger, who would have turned 100 this year. The Bright Siders feature adept musicianship and skillful audience engagement regardless of age. Co-presented in association with the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, and the Smithsonian Year of Music.
