Music for kids at Super Saturday
Published 6:16 pm Tuesday, March 6, 2012
The 34th annual Super Saturday on March 17 will feature award-winning children’s music makers Princess Katie and Racer Steve at the Tryon Movie Theatre, with performances at 9:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
Princess Katie and Racer Steve began making music for children quite by accident. For several years they made volunteer visits to local children’s hospitals and at events for at risk children, dressed up in costumes of famous characters from TV and movies. They regularly visited children’s hospitals dressed as Shrek and Fiona, the Incredibles, holiday elves and as Sponge Bob and Spiderman.
Katie and Steve said they decided it would be fun to entertain these kids through song, and the characters of Princess Katie and Racer Steve were born. In 2008, the band’s second album, “Fast & Feisty” was named one of the top 10 children’s music albums of the year. The band was also voted “2009’s Best Kid’s Entertainers in New York City” by Nickelodeon and ParentsConnect readers, among other accolades.
The Super Saturday box office is open at the Tryon Fine Arts Center March 7-9 and March 15-16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For information, call 828-859-8322, ext. 301.
