Looking for an indoor option, why not check out a family-friendly concert. Brooklyn Mamas has collected upcoming concerts in January and February.

The Wiyos

Be prepared to be transported to the 1920’s and ’30s. The Wiyos will be bringing their Fedoras, vaudeville, washboards, kazoos and banjos inviting kids and adults alike to holler, stomp and sing along to old-time American folk music. This Brooklyn-based trio captures the vintage spirit of the era by drawing on blues, ragtime, spirituals, and Appalachian jug-band music. The Wiyos band includes Michael Farkas (Lead Vocals, Harmonica, Kazoo and Washboard); Teddy Webber (Table/Lap Steel Guitar, Acoustic Guitar and Vocals) and Seth Sauerkraut Travins (Upright Bass.)  Click here to listen an audio of The Wiyos.  Carnegie Kids hold concerts throughout the city, visit Carnegiehall.org/Community Programs to view the entire schedule.
