Music + Live Music
Laura Doherty is a nationally touring children's performer and award-winning recording artist. Laura found her place in the acoustic-folk world early on, picking up the guitar at age 16. Originally from Westchester County, NY, she came to Chicago after college and soon joined the teaching staff of the legendary Old Town School of Folk Music. For over a decade, Laura was the Director of the Old Town School’s wildly popular early-childhood Wiggleworms program. In 2009 she took a daring leap and decided to go full-time with kids’ music, showing an intense passion for creating sweet, folk-inspired songs for children and families.
