My kids love music of all kinds. We have had so much fun listening to live music from bluegrass to ska to rock, oh and even an Elvis impersonator! I have trouble finding live music that starts before 7:00 p.m. that's just too late for my young ones. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

There is live music every Sunday between 11-1 at Weaver Street Market in Carrboro (May - September). Weaver Street Market - Jazz brunch
It is a very kid-friendly event.

There is also often live music at the local Farmer's Markets. I know both the Durham and Cary Farmer's Markets have music on Saturday mornings, though it is usually just 2-3 person groups.

A lot of the local festivals have music. We're planning to attend the Festival for the Eno around July 4. 29th annual Festival for the Eno I've also heard good things about the Bull Durham Blues Festival in September. You also might want to mark your calendar for Shakori Hills; the fall festival will be in October Shakori Hills

I like the options the others have already posted already. Here is another one located right in North Raleigh that is very kid friendly. The Midtown Music Series at North Hills. Free Music every Thursday Night in the Spring/Summer from 6pm-8pm. You can see what kind of music is scheduled each week here:

Cat's Cradle in Carrboro will occasionally have all-ages shows that start in the early afternoon. For a while (maybe still now), these were every Sunday afternoon.

Downtown Live (http://www.raleighdowntownlive.com/schedule.php - broken link)

This can get crowded after dark, but I wouldn't hesitate to catch the earlier bands with the kids.

You guys Rock!
Now I'll be rockin' with my toddlers!
Thank you so much for the suggestions. This board has been a great source of information. I try to share what I know but it seems like I'm getting more than I'm giving.
