Songs of the Australian Outback and British Isles echoed through River Park Square on Saturday, October 4 as the Urban Coyote Bush Band performed for another KPBX Kids' Concert.

Kids of all ages made musical noise with clappers, washboards, small cymbals, and the 'lagerphone' made out of bottlecaps.
