As an actress, Heidi Swedberg is best known for playing George Costanza’s fiancée, Susan, on TV’s Seinfeld. But her roots as a musician run much deeper – to the morning when she got her first ukulele from the Easter Bunny as a 5-year-old living in Hawaii.

Swedberg has built a national reputation for her ukulele-inflected, highly interactive approach to family music-making, and returns to the Library with her unique, Sukey Jump style. Enjoy a family concert in which everyone in the family can participate. Pick up an instrument, clap your hands, sing, or just hum along.

Appropriate for all ages.
