How many of you remember going to the Vancouver International Children’s Festival as a kid? I sure do. It was an annual event for our family and always a highlight of the year. I still have fond memories of seeing Raffi, Fred Penner, Sharon Lois and Bram and many others.
Well, this year it’s my turn. I am so excited to be a headlining act at the festival this year! I will be performing with the Backyard Band twice at the festival: May 30th at 10:30am and June 3rd at 10:30am. The shows will also mark the release of my long anticipated music video DVD. Those attending my concerts will also see the worldwide premiere a few of these new videos!
The festival has changed over the years. The biggest change of course is the new location on Granville Island. I, for one, think Granville Island is a fantastic new home for the festival. It means entertainers get to perform in excellent theatres while festival goers get the benefit of the amenities on the island in addition to the large number of activities set up around the festival itself.
Tickets are now on sale and I look forward to reaching new fans as part of the festival, but I also hope many of my existing fans will be able to share this very special experience with my band, my family, and me.

I would love to hear about some of your memories from the festival. If any come to mind please comment below.
