About Little Folkies:
Little Folkies is a purely acoustic folk music class for parents and kids ages 0-5, with classes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We carry on the tradition of our folk heroes Woody Guthrie, Ella Jenkins, Pete Seeger and many others, who played and performed good child-inspired, parent-friendly kids folk music enjoyable by children and parents alike! The performance at the Martin Griffin Preserve will feature beautiful, fun and engaging original and traditional folk songs.
Irena is the owner and creator of Little Folkies. She has taught music, both private lessons, group classes and preschool classes in the Bay Area since she moved to the area in 2006. Irena created most of the music and program of Little Folkies starting in 2009 while living and teaching in San Francisco and after moving to West Marin in 2010. In fact, most of the songs of Little Folkies were written on or after hikes in the beautiful woods of Inverness and the surrounding area.
