Justin Roberts will perform at St. Luke’s, Feb. 19

February 19 @ 4:00 PM

On Sunday, February 19, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church will host a concert with Evanston-based Justin Roberts, a five-time Grammy nominee and one of the founders of the modern children’s music scene. For 25 years, Justin Roberts has been creating the soundtrack to families’ lives, helping kids navigate the joys and sorrows of growing up, while inspiring parents to remember their own childhoods. Hailed by the New York Times as “the Judy Blume of kiddie rock,” Roberts logs thousands of miles on the road each year, dishing out unexpectedly intelligent and fun rocking music for kids and their parents. His songs are the kind of get-stuck-in-your-head pop nuggets that draw comparisons to Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, and Paul Simon, prompting USA Today to call him “hands-down the best songwriter in the genre.”

Roberts’ latest album, Space Cadet, is heavily inspired by his life as a new dad. The feel-good album offers themes of inclusion and acceptance that wind through emotionally intelligent songs. While still using his imagination and childhood memories, Roberts now weaves in first-hand parenting experience. Kitchen dance parties, fascinating fire trucks, and playground life have inspired these joyous and passionate new songs.

This family-friendly event will take place at 4 p.m. on Sunday, February 19 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 939 Hinman Ave. in Evanston. A pancake supper will take place immediately after the concert, and is free to all ticket-holders. Tickets are available at
