The Meltdown Festival Proves It’s Greatness…Again

Tucked away in an idyllic New England town is one of the finest annual children’s music events in all the land.

Meltdown: The River’s Family Music & Book Festival is an all-day immersion in some of the greatest all-ages music, literature and extra-curricular activities known to man. Oh, and it’s 100% free.  No kidding.

The 2011 lineup has just been announced and it’s freakin’ outstanding.  Check out the list of bands/artists…then make your hotel reservations and transportation arrangements STAT:


  • Flannery Brothers
  • Keith Muslow
  • Deedle Deedle Dees
  • Mister G
  • Brady Rymer
  • Lunch Money
  • Okee Dokee Brothers
  • Ratboy Jr.
  • Joe’s Backyard Band
  • The Bramble Jam
  • The Spiral Up Kids
  • Marcy Gregoire

AUTHORS reading their works include Jeanne Birdsall (The Penderwicks) and Jon Scieszka (The Stinky Cheese Man), with Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Lunch Lady Comics, Punk Farm) playing the role of host.

Assuming The Bear stays healthy for the next 4 weeks and misses no more school, OWTK will once again return to Florence, MA for Meltdown.  Join us, won’t you?
