Music for kids and their adults
Acoustic, Americana and Roots
Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
Here at The Current, we live for joy, play and music discovery. We believe that music makes ordinary moments extraordinary. So this spring, we’re making Saturday mornings extra special for kids and their grown-ups by bringing Rock the Cradle straight to your homes. Starting May 15, we are bringing some of the best parts of our much-loved in-person event to video.
Over six video episodes, The Current will bring the dance party to you with Rock the Cradle Play Along. We have invited some of our best musician friends — including Koo Koo Kanga Roo, House of Dance, Gaby Moreno, Elena Moon Park, SaulPaul, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Nur-D, Annie Humphrey, Siama’s Congo Roots and Gaelynn Lea — plus other fun guests to get your weekend started with movement, play, learning, super fun surprises and of course some music! Let's rock out together!
Check Rock the Cradle Play Along every Saturday morning starting May 15 for the latest episode.
