A family-friendly music series introduces kiddos to classic-rock staples — and offers parents some respite from earworms such as "Baby Shark." The Rock and Roll Playhouse Concert Series highlights superstars such as Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks and Queen through interactive performances geared toward families with kids ages 10 and under. Games and props — think streamers, hula hoops and a giant parachute — keep little listeners engaged as local musicians serve up iconic tunes. Concerts take place in 18 music venues around the country, including Higher Ground in South Burlington. A January show there featured well-known numbers by the Grateful Dead and drew an impressive 600 grown-ups and youngsters. Upcoming dates at Higher Ground showcase songs by Phish, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. "We saw a need to create a space for music-loving parents to share a concert experience with their kids ... especially in this particularly frigid part of the year when it can be challenging to find indoor activities for the whole family," explained Higher Ground assistant general manager Mark Balderston. And yes, in addition to chicken fingers and quesadillas, the bar will be open.

The Rock and Roll Playhouse presents the Music of Phish for Kids on Saturday, February 9; the Music of the Beatles for Kids on Saturday, February 23 and the Music of the Rolling Stones for Kids on Saturday, March 23 at 11:30 a.m. Doors open at 11 a.m. Tickets cost $15; free for kids under 1. Higher Ground is located at 1214 Williston Rd. in South Burlington. Learn more at highergroundmusic.com and therockandrollplayhouse.com.
