Lynn Lewis and Friends
Lynn Lewis and her friends perform music for children ages 1-10 and their families to sing along and dance, and to meet her costumed character friends. She has written her own children’s songs and has produced a children’s CD, “It’s a Beautiful Day,” which talks about her animal friends — Spanky the dog, Charlie the dog, Mr. Lewis, Mr. Squirrel and Pokey the cat.
Many of her inspirations came from adoring her own pet animals at home. “I get a melody going on in my head and a visual of what I want to sing about,” she said. “ It happens quite easy and quickly, I run for a pen and starting jotting everything down.”
Lynn Lewis has appeared at many venues in Connecticut as well as on local TV programs.

Fools on the Hill are a five-piece Beatles tribute band based out of Milford. Individual band members have been active in the local music world for many years.
