Kenny White’s touring commitments prevented him from playing a school show but Elizabeth Wise and her dog Cricket more than made up for that at Mary Munford Elementary on March 13, 2024. About 300 students were introduced to the blues in a half-hour set that included some vocals by Cricket.

The kids loved it and responded enthusiastically. Elizabeth showed the students several playing styles and talked about the process of writing her songs. When she asked how many students play guitar about a third raised there hands, even more when asked who likes to sing. It was a great way for all to begin the day.
