Ants on a Log

Ants on a Log is a Philadelphia-based trio: elementary science teacher Anya Rose and music therapists Julie Be and Miles Crabtree. Blending their skills has enabled the trio to reach beyond the usual scope of simple songs for children. The Ants have produced four albums, two musicals, and numerous singles, music videos, and educational resources. Their musical “Curious: Think Outside the Pipeline!” won a Parent’s Choice Award for the 2019 soundtrack, and is viewable as a musical movie, as well as a script for schools to perform. The Ants have created companion content for several songs, including an anti-racism discussion guide and a skills worksheet for coping with anxiety and intrusive thoughts. Ants on a Log’s music has been featured widely in national media, including the NY Times and NPR, and their self-produced music videos have been selected for juried film festivals around the world. The band has accrued songwriting awards from the International Songwriting Competition and the Songwriters’ Association of Washington’s Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. In 2021, Julie Be received a Leeway Foundation Transformation Award, recognizing artists who demonstrate a long-term commitment to social change work. Performance credits include Wolf Trap, Cabot Theater, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Philadelphia Zoo, Strand Theater, World Cafe Live, and Provincetown Family Week. The Ants will be performing at the Event Center at Central Hall Commons, 152 East Main St., Dover-Foxcroft, Maine 04426. Tickets are $4 for kids 18 and under and $8 for adults.
