Reggae icon, and 2010 Grammy winner for Best Musical Album for Children, Ziggy Marley shares his love for family and music while kicking off the 2010/2011 Big Red Chair Family Series!
“Music helps children to grow with open minds and open hearts and this is my message. Family Time is for all families and especially the world family.” –Ziggy Marley
Family Time represents the latest in Marley’s music for children with other recent contributions including songs for Dora the Explorer, Arthur, and Shark Tale and appearances on various children's television programs, including Sesame Street. The album resonates with themes of love, responsibility, unity, freedom, fun and generosity – exactly the kind of energy we want to associate with the Skirball Center and the Big Red Chair.
Presented as part of the Big Red Chair Family Series.
Recommended for all ages.
Performance Length: 75 minutes
A ZIGGY MARLEY concert event suitable for ages 14 and up
will be held September 19, 8:00PM.
Big Red Chair FAMILY FUN ACTIVITY: When you attend Family Time with Ziggy Marley, Ziggy will share with you – in music and in words – thoughts about his family and what family means to him. However, we also want to know about your family, so we invite you to bring along with you, on the day of the concert, a drawing, photo, original poem or anything else that represents your family, what your family means to you or what is special about your family. What you bring will be used to create a Family Time collage before the performance! For inspiration, or a starting point for your project check out this coloring book page from Ziggy himself!
