Rockland- Bring out the Banjo! On May 17th at 11am the Coastal Children’s Museum presents a performance by Professor Smartypants A.K.A. Mark Horn.  The good Professor prides himself on playing serious music about comical stuff.  In the tradition of banjo-pickin’ humorists like Uncle Dave Macon and String Bean, Nashville instrumentalist and Grammy nominee, Mark Horn performs his family-friendly vaudeville revue at libraries and children's events around his new home in Maine. This show will take place above the Coastal Children’s Museum in the Sail Power Steam Museum.

“I love traditional country music and the stories it tells,” says the professor himself. He recorded his album "Learn Something New" in 2012 and His innovative banjo stylings can also be heard on Lonesome Bob’s record “Things Fall Apart”, on the tribute album “I Love: Tom T. Hall’s Songs of Fox Hollow”, and in regular performances of his comedy duo, the Mark & Mike Show.
