Laurie Berkner to perform

Laurie Berkner is offbeat, unusual and one of the hottest things to hit children's music in the past decade. And Saturday, she performs at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick.

Berkner, an accomplished singer/songwriter and performer, has released four award-winning children's CDs, including her latest disc, Under a Shady Tree.

Most recently, she has released her first picture-book with CD, Victor Vito and Freddie Vasco, about two road-tripping polar bears. The book was born out of Berkner's popular song "Victor Vito" from her third CD of the same name.

Berkner's concert at the Weinberg Center will include high-energy tunes from all her albums.
