Musician and author Ralph Covert will visit Brainerd lakes area libraries starting in June 2022 to perform interactive songs for area families.

Ralph’s World will tour area libraries Wednesday-Saturday, June 22-25, through the Kitchigami Regional Library System.

This live show is the mega-fun musical planet where kids rock and dance to their own and their parents’ delight.

It’s the creation of Ralph Covert - indie rocker, songwriter, playwright and children’s book author. He’s taken the same high-energy and super-melodic sense that he developed for his touring pop-rock band to kid’s music.

Covert engages his young fans with activity songs, story songs, dancing songs and a healthy dose of pure silliness. With 10 critically acclaimed albums and countless shows from coast to coast, Ralph's World is the family friendly rock and roll experience that parents and kids both love.

Free area performances include:


  • Wednesday, June 22: 1 p.m., Cole Memorial Building, Pequot Lakes.
  • Thursday, June 23: 10 a.m., Brainerd Public Library; 1 p.m., Crosslake Area Library.
  • Friday, June 24: 4:30 p.m., Cass County Fairgrounds, Pine River.

This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
