Judy's Tune RoomJudy's Tune Room


Judy Pancoast's Masters Degree in Education/Reading informs all of her songwriting and helps to make her the ideal choice as a library program presenter.Since 1996 she has performed at hundreds of libraries all over the United States, and has been on the select roster of the New Hampshire State Library's "Kids, Books & the Arts" Summer Reading Program six times.

Librarians rave about her lively, original and interactive musical programs which can be adapted for any Summer Reading theme, and have also booked her for many Children's Room holiday parties and events.

"Thanks so much! We had a great time  and our customer comments were through the roof!"

"Judy Pancoast performed at our End of Summer Literacy Picnic last year and the kids and adults loved her! She provided a fun-filled literary-themed performance perfect for our program. Judy was friendly, engaging, and approachable. Judy was a pleasure to work with and we would love to have her perform at our Library again!"
Carrie BryantChildren's Library AssociateWest Haven Public Library, 2021

As it is unknown at this time whether we will be able to meet in person, Judy would like librarians to know that virtual concerts from her living room are always available, and libraries are free to keep the concerts up on their website for as long as they like after the show. The flat rate for a 45-60 minute concert is just $250.

Here's what Sarah Turner of the Lewiston Public Library in Maine said about one of Judy's recent virtual concerts:

Hello Judy!

We loved it! Thank you so much for doing that for us! We will of course share your program with other librarians. I love your upbeat attitude and presence on the screen. Your songs are super catchy and fun. My favorite of course was the one about librarians! When we can have in-person programming again we would love to have you here in person for a program. Thank you again!

And here's what Rachel Baker of the Elkins Public Library in NH had to say about a recent virtual program:

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

Thank you for your wonderful performance. Your stage presence transfers so easily through your camera, thank you for including our viewers.

Thank you for being you and for making our day here at Elkins Public Library!

In-person concerts outside with social distancing are also possible. Please contact Judy for rates that include travel.

Be sure to reserve the date you want by contacting Judy ASAP at judy@judypancoast.com or call her at (603) 716-3646. She's New England's own Grammy Nominee for Best Children's Album and her songs are popular all over the world! Don't miss your chance to bring her to your library in person, or virtually!

Remember that Judy LOVES libraries, and therefore her rates are always negotiable with great discounts for block bookings. Dates are already being filled, so email Judy here or call her today!

March 2, 2015 - Last week during school vacation we had a Winter Warm-up event with Grammy nominated, singer/songwriter Judy Pancoast.  We had 65 in attendance and Judy had everyone up on their feet ‘Swimming in Jell-O’ (my granddaughter’s still singing it!) and swaying on our surfboards to ‘I Can’t Go Surfing” along with many other of her other original songs.  Although she’s well known, I just wanted to convey that she provides a wonderfully engaging performance at a reasonable price. She appeals to both children and adults and her energy is contagious.

Susan I. LeClair Library Director Elkins Public Library Canterbury, NH 03224

Thank you for the wonderful program! You are awesome and so is your daughter! The enthusiasm you brought to our summer reading program Dream-Big Read! Kick-Off Party is something I hope to continue throughout the summer. Children and parents alike thought you were fun and generated joy! I have to agree you are the best way to start off a summer! We wish you well and we will continue to sing your praises. Loved your songs:)

Thanks again!

Kathy Godin, Children's Librarian, Berlin (NH) Public Library

Hi Judy,
Thank you for performing at Bethlehem Public Library’s “Dream Big” Summer Reading Program Kickoff.  The turnout was great and your performance got the kids moving and grooving! They have been flocking to the library since your performance to sign up for the reading program – some of them humming “Dream Big”.   Your songs provided inspiration and reinforced the importance of their local library in their lives.   What a way to kickoff our summer reading program!   Thank you again!!
