Celebrate Brooklyn: CREOLE FOR KIDZ! TERRANCE SIMIEN & THE ZYDECO EXPERIENCE

Jun 6, 2015 @ 4:00 pm

| Free
Acreole

The New Orleans accordionist, singer, and educator Terrance Simien, “a Zydeco Master” who “delivers soul worthy of Stax greats” (Rolling Stone), brings a touch of the bayou to the Bandshell for the Festival’s annual homage to the trailblazing children’s book author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats, a Brooklyn native who was the first to populate his distinctly urban stories with young people of color. The day will include readings from the author’s works by Celebrate Brooklyn! favorite Dan Zanes, complete with video projections.

BRIC presents the 37th annual Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival, comprised of 29 performances, June 3 – August 12. The programming, reflective of Brooklyn’s eclecticism and diversity, features a wide array of free, world-class performances in the singular environs of the Prospect Park Bandshell.
