Jon was born in New York City and failed to grow up in the Philadelphia area.  In 1971, he hitchhiked through 14 countries and entertained tourists in French, Italian and Greek cafes.  He has sung in a tennis stadium in Lima, Peru, in theatres and on the streets of Ecuador, in schools and concert halls in Russia and Latvia and between the grapevines of southern France.  In this country, he performs in clubs, coffeehouses, schools, universities, child care and senior centers, prisons, hospitals, weddings, house parties—in every setting and for every population under the sun and then some.  Jon has been honored as an “Extraordinary Vermonter” by the governor, received the Mayor’s Peace Prize in Burlington, was awarded a Silver Citation by the Vermont Arts Council and the Ellen McCulloch-Lovell Award for Arts in Education.  In 1996 he was chosen to carry the Olympic Torch through Brattleboro on its way to Atlanta and didn’t drop it.  He lives with his family and other creatures, among the 800 souls of Elmore, Vermont.  On Kids Day, Jon Gailmor will be singing his own songs and others for children and immature so-called adults, all with rampant audience involvement, designed to uplift, entertain and give hope!
