Lewisburg's Billy Kelly and South Carolina native Molly Ledford will present a free family-friendly matinee entitled Trees on Saturday, Dec. 5, at 3 p.m. at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are not required.

The event is sponsored, in part, by the family of Janet C. Weis. Attendees are asked to bring a canned food item, which will be donated to Union County Children and Youth Services and distributed to local families in need during the holiday season.

Before the performance, from 2-3 p.m., Bucknell's student chapter of the Botanical Society of America will offer crafts and activities related to the wonder and science of trees, plus offer children in attendance an opportunity to grow their own giant oak.

Kelly released his first children's music album to widespread critical acclaim in 2009. Since then he has recorded with Davy Jones of the Monkees, and produced a series of nationally-distributed music videos for American Public Television.

Ledford fronts the renowned kids music band Lunch Money. Her smart, catchy songs are a staple on the Sirius/XM channel, "Kids Place Live" and she has performed across the Unites States, notably at the Austin City Limits Festival and Lollapalooza.

Kelly and Ledford teamed up in 2014 to write and record Trees - a musical celebration of everyone's favorite ubiquitous woody plants - with Grammy-winning producer, Dean Jones.
