Local folk musician Bob Stuart will share his children’s songs at the Coastal Children’s Museum Wednesday, June 19, from 11 to 11:45 a.m. to help celebrate the opening of the museum’s newest play space, the Sea Star Stage.

Stuart has been singing along the Midcoast of Maine for more than 30 years and had developed a reputation for his wonderful voice, his guitar and banjo skills and the bounty of his original and traditional songs. His concert will have children of all ages singing and dancing along.

The Sea Star Stage was designed and constructed by Cindy Gregory and Tim Hansen and was installed overnight May 4. The duo’s work can be seen in the museum’s Adventure Park, Lobster Beach Book Nook and the Animorphs exhibits; they currently are working with the expanded general store area.

“We are so glad that Bob Stuart can help us to celebrate the new exhibit which has fast become a favorite part of the museum for families,” said Megan Rogers, program coordinator, for the museum who will join Stuart, her father, for a song she sings on his children’s album “Morning Town Ride.”

The concert is free for members and included in the price of admission for non-members. The Coastal Children’s Museum is located at 75 Mechanic St. and is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. For more on upcoming events and memberships available, visit coastalchildrensmuseum.org or visit the Facebook page.
