This June the Backyard Band and I are super excited about our first performances at the PotashCorp Children’s Festival of Saskatchewan from June 1-4 and the Winnipeg International Children’s Festival from June 5-7. We’ve been keen to play these festivals for years and finally we get to do it!
We will be performing 2 shows daily at each festival with songs in both English and French. The band and I are primed and ready to rock! For a sample of our show check, out our latest promo video.
In addition to performing at these festivals, I also look forward to connecting with one of my favourites in the business, and a definite inspiration in getting me started down the path of children’s entertainment (both live and on CBC), Mr. Fred Penner. When I was a little kid, I loved his show that aired on Kids’ CBC and those fond memories are a major reason why we were so happy to find a home for “Will’s Jams” on the same network .
The theme of the Saskatchewan festival is “Sounds Like Fun,” and I definitely have to agree! We’re prairie bound and ready for fun!
