The Laurie Berkner Band
Matthews Theatre

Born in France and raised in Princeton, Laurie Berkner cut her teeth in rock bands before stumbling on an innate talent for writing songs that connected with kids. Her music has captivated generations of children, speaking to their experiences and empathizing with their humanity, free of condescension. Songs like "Pig on Her Head" and "We Are the Dinosaurs" brim with child-like wonder, and more self-effacing tunes such as "I’m Not Perfect" or "I’m a Mess" preach the beauty of imperfection—reminders useful to both parents and kids. A pioneer in what is now referred to as the progressive "kindie rock" movement—a less saccharine style of music for children and their parents—Berkner’s shows delight and inspire with music you won’t mind hearing on repeat.

Laurie will perform two matinee shows, including an early solo sensory friendly and relaxed performance for audiences with sensory sensitives. For more information on what to expect for Relaxed Performances at McCarter click here. The second show will feature Laurie and her full band.
