Rainbow Emma is a versatile artist based in Bethlehem, PA, blending her talents as a children’s musician, geek musician, children’s librarian, TYA (Theater for Young Audiences) playwright, and homeschooling mom. Primarily strumming the ukulele while also experimenting with piano and autoharp, she’s known for her dynamic performances that captivate audiences of all ages.

Before the pandemic, Emma drew crowds of 45-60 children to her engaging storytimes at the Wellesley Free Library. Amidst the challenges of the pandemic, she ingeniously adapted 118 rhyming picture books into delightful songs, ensuring that virtual storytime remained a cherished experience for young listeners.

Beyond her work in children’s music and library services, Emma’s passion for geek culture shines through in her performances at conventions and geeky venues across the nation. Her diverse background includes stints in children’s theater, where she excelled as a storyteller, teacher, writer, and actress before pursuing her MLIS degree.

With a unique blend of creativity, enthusiasm, and dedication, Rainbow Emma continues to inspire and entertain audiences while nurturing a love for music, literature, and storytelling in children everywhere.
