Children's entertainer Mary Lambert will be in the Peace and Northern Rockies this and next week providing free 50-minute concerts in conjunction with local libraries.

A well-travelled children's entertainer is making her way to the northeast this week and next.

Mary Lambert will put on a series of free short concerts, about 50 minutes in length, in Chetwynd, Tumbler Ridge, Dawson Creek, Pouce Coupe, Taylor, Fort St. John, Hudson's Hope, and Fort Nelson.

It's called the Sing Out Summer Fun tour and is being sponsored by the Northeast BC library federation.

“I guess it's been going on about 27 or 28 years now,” said Lambert, looking back on her early roots in southern Ontario.

“It started as something fun and to have a little extra money coming in. It's (now) turned in to, this is what I do. I really enjoy meeting families and kids wherever I go.”

Lambert, who now lives in Calmar, Alta., near Edmonton, admitted singing is something she kind of fell in to.

“I had a friend who heard to me sing to my three kids at bedtime. She was starting to get into the business so I started to sing with her until my family moved. I thought this is something I enjoy doing, connecting with kids.”

While she doesn't want to reveal too much about what the show is all about, Lambert says it's geared towards celebrating the summer and the things we do in the summer including how to keep the black flies and mosquitos away – one of her songs is called the Black Fly Boogie.

Below are the show times and locations of the free concerts.
