Join us at Pitney Meadows Community Farm for an afternoon of music and storytelling with Bill Harley. Registration is limited and required for this event. Please register each attendee individually online through our Events Calendar. This event is made possible by a Stewart's Holiday Match Grant.
Intergenerational entertainment at it’s best, Bill’s songs and stories paint a vibrant and hilarious picture of growing up, schooling and family life. Masterful storytelling and comic narrative songs will have listeners young and old laughing out loud. With slice-of-life vignettes about big trouble and simple pleasures, Bill’s rubber-faced abandon and keen memory will delight the entire family.
Bill Harley is well-traveled, well-read, well-educated, well-spoken, and well-loved. Accompanied by his guitar, his narrative songs and stories, both original and traditional, are a celebration of our common humanity. Best known for his work with children and families, his ability to navigate through a confusing world with humor and wisdom is evident in his masterful storytelling as well as his numerous award-winning recordings and books. A two-time Grammy winner, he is vibrant, outrageous, unpredictable and genuine with songs and stories about growing up, schooling and what it is to be human—our connections with one another and with the planet we share. Recognized by audiences and peers as one of the finest performing storytellers in the country, his work has influenced a generation of children, parents, performing artists and educators. Bill tours internationally as a performing artist, author and keynote speaker from his home in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
