Arts Council Northeast and the City of Hurst are pleased to welcome Mr. Blue Shoes for a concert on Friday, June 08, 2018 at the Hurst Library 901 Precinct Line Rd.
Mr. Blue Shoes is the brainchild of Michael Dyson, Grammy Award-winning producer, youth entertainer, guitarist, and performer. To date, Dyson has shared his unique version of the Blues story with over 240,000 children. Mr. Blue Shoes is a highly interactive and engaging, multi-sensory live music experience that combines Blues music, oral history and life lessons, designed to inspire children of all ages about music and learning. Covering a span of 400 years, music, song, dance, and storytelling immerse students in a historical journey through America’s cultural heritage. Not only will children be engaged throughout the performance, they will become part of the performance – singing, dancing, clapping, participate in call and response and perhaps even visiting the stage! In fact, children are so engaged that Mr. Blue Shoes concludes with a yoga breathing exercise to calm the senses before departing.
Through the MasterWorks Series, Arts Council Northeast and the City of Hurst present free performances on selected evenings throughout the year. The MasterWorks Series is designed to offer a variety of quality family entertainment to the community by utilizing the talent of local, regional, and national artists.
