Tallulah's Daddy (Matt Lynch)
Sometimes when people talk about kid musicians, we hear parents and caregivers groan. Nothing against Barney but kids and their grownups sometimes want something a little different. Enter Tallulah's Daddy (or Mr. Matt, as the kids call him). Matt Lynch is a stellar children's musician that plays music that both kids and adults can enjoy.
He often takes requests but it's the staples that keeps families coming back week after week. From the kids favorite "We are the dinosaurs" to "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash, there is a little something for most every taste. His rendition of "Boris the Spider" by The Who has a happier ending than the original and always elicits giggles from the toddlers dancing on the stage while he performs. While Matt isn't the only children's musician popular in Portland, his upbeat demeanor and universally enjoyable songs keep his shows very popular by a loyal group of young followers (and their grown ups). The kids love when he asks to start a band with the audience and brings out his large bag of egg shaped shakers to share.
Personally, we enjoy visiting him at Mississippi Pizza in NE Portland but he plays all over the city (and does birthday parties!). Check out more info about where to find Tallulah's Daddy below and let us know what you think of his show!
