Vered at the Cabot Theater

Vered is an award winning musician who brings the joys and intricacies of family life to music. Come see her at The Cabot Theater in Beverly Massachusetts

Vered is an award winning musician who brings the joys and intricacies of family life to music. Her show is fun, funny, gets everyone singing along, and sometimes will even have parents shedding an emotional tear. Inspired by her experience as a music therapist and psychotherapist, and her experience as a mom of three, Vered approaches relationships in the family with wonder, curiosity, and humor. Her music is reminiscent of a Doo-Wop band, using playful vocal harmonies, lively horns, pots and pans, and beatboxing to get everyone jumping and singing along. Vered’s albums Good Morning My Love, Hello My Baby, and Songs for Sisters and Brothers all received prestigious awards. Parents often say that her music is like a soundtrack to life with their kids. “[O]ne big jazzy love song to childhood.” –Red Tricycle
