Northampton Community Music Center Family Concert Series: Big Littles

Matt Singer and Liam Hurley are both dads of super cute toddlers, they both live in super cute Brooklyn and together they make up the Big Littles, a super cute acoustic pop rock duo that deftly walks the tightrope of making genuinely enjoyable music for kids and for grownups. If they don't sound super cute enough, Matt plays a little guitar and Liam plays a little drum set. Super cute.
