Little Folkies Birthday Parties

"Dear Little Folkies,
Thank you so much for attending our two year old's birthday party and leading a wonderful song circle. It was basically her dream come true to have Little Folkies at her house! She had so much fun! We have been enjoying Little Folkies for about a year and a half now, it's such a great concept with great songs! Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

Host Requirements  

It is the responsibility of the host to gather the families for circle before the class/performance. Preferably the host sends out an email to the guests ahead of time, asking them to join and participate in the music circle to help celebrate the birthday girl/boy. It's also really nice if there's a big blanket that we can all sit on and that it's a somewhat flat surface and preferably some shade if the event is outdoors. Please do not have any TV’s or other music in the background and remove as many distractions as possible. I.e, don’t put the music circle next to the ball pit or trampoline or bouncy castle.

Birthday Parties
Musicians are happy to play the happy birthday song at the end of the set. This can be arranged before the music begins so that it is timed correctly for the party.(Please note: Teacher availability is subject to change, we can not guarantee specific teachers, but are happy to take requests)
