(August 7, 2017) – Children throughout Cincinnati are invited to a free concert featuring award-winning and Grammy-nominated children’s singer Zak Morgan on September 9, from 4:00-6;00pm on the lawn of Knox Presbyterian Church, 3400 Michigan Avenue, Hyde Park.
The second annual “Knox Rocks” concert will also feature a variety of lawn games, food and other family-friendly activities, including plenty of sing-along and dance-along time.
Morgan’s CD “When Bullfrogs Croak” was nominated for a Grammy, a rare feat for an independent artist. When he is not writing and recording, Zak performs family concerts throughout the country. His live performances are always filled with laughter and warmth as he encourages children to read, imagine and believe in themselves. Morgan has released three critically acclaimed records and one DVD, with lyrics often that are both gently humorous and meaningful—and often compared with Shel Silverstein.
Morgan currently resides in Cincinnati, OH and is working on his fourth record.
“Knox Rocks” attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Free food and drinks will be provided, and indoor restrooms will be available. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will move indoors.

About the Zac Morgan: Zak Morgan was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1970. His sense of humor and penchant for wordplay are gifts passed down from his grandfather, George “Bud” Rooney. Listening to his grandfather invent yarns, limericks, and even new words had a profound effect on him. Now, as a successful entertainer, Morgan has been compared to Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss because of his wit and child-friendly sophistication. Morgan began writing songs in high school. By 1991 he had released two singles that were played on over two hundred radio stations. Morgan’s second CD, When Bullfrogs Croak, was nominated for a Grammy, a rare feat for an independent release. www.zakmorgan.com
