Ralph Covert – indie rocker, songwriter, playwright, and children’s book author – has taken the same high-energy and super-melodic sense that he developed for his touring pop-rock band to kids' music.
Covert's musical repetoire will have the whole family singing, dancing and moving when he visits the Sycamore and Genoa libraries this week to give a pair of free performances.
At 4 p.m. Friday, Covert brings his "Ralph's World" show to the Sycamore Library,103 E. Main St., Sycamore.
Later, at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Covert will appear at the Genoa Public Library's remodeled Event Center, the former library building adjacent to thenew facility at 240 West Main St. Refreshments will be provided in Genoa.
As part of a newly released CD, "Ralph's World Rocks and Reads!", Covert is touring at libraries across the Midwest.
Covert has recorded songs for Disney Sound, performed at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, and garnered critical acclaim from magazines such as People, Parenting and Parade. The New York Times referred to Covert as the Elvis Costello of kids musicians, and he has performed live on the CBS Morning Show, NPR, Sirius XM Radio andother national outlets.
