Brian has been performing children’s music since the 1980s and has been celebrated by outlets like USA TODAY. His guitar music, accompanied by Terry’s vocals, will be water-themed for the Concordia shows, said Library Director for the Parish Amanda Taylor.

Each year the American Library Association chooses a theme, which the Louisiana State Library uses to create a performance roster.

So far, there have been performances about pirates and scuba diving, and a visit from a Louisiana State Wildlife and Fisheries official with baby alligators.

The Kinders’ songs, Taylor said, will be about fish, octopuses and other aquatic creatures.

“They’re always interactive. There’s lots of participation,” Taylor said about the performances. The Kinders’ will be the last in their seasonal series.
