Ants on a Log

Ants on a Log
(1) by Nicole Myles

Ants on a Log is Julie Beth and Anya Rose. The folksy duo write music for children and other childlike people, songfully advocating for positivity, social justice, and silliness! The Ants have been featured on WXPN's Kids Corner, at the Philadelphia Folk Fest, and on radio stations around the globe. In 2016 the Ants performed their debut musical "Curious: Think Outside the Pipeline," using the power of eco-feminist music and humor to encourage families to stay "curious" about alternatives to fossil fuels.

In their off-stage lives, Julie is a music therapist and Anya is an elementary science teacher. Their powers combined make for smart and socially conscious folk, mostly originals with some must-know classics. Their harmonies and rhythmic play are a delight for children (and grown children!) of all ages.
