Fred Penner is a gentle giant with kind eyes and an undeniable ability to make you feel good about yourself. He’s a musical master who brings 25 years of commitment, consistency and depth to a career that includes a prolific 12 Children's Albums, countless energy packed live shows for throngs of eager audiences all across North America.
He has, without a doubt, established himself as a fundamental part of the North American family entertainment scene and has been a household name for generations. Whether it's through CDs, videos, books or television, his cornerstone philosophy remains the same: absolute trust that his work can make a difference.
More than the music, the two-time Juno winner for Best Children's Album Sing with Fred and eight-time nominee's body of work is about energy and emotional connection. The guy who crawled magically out of that hollow log for 12 seasons and nearly 900 episodes in the hit CBC TV show Fred Penner's Place receives fan mail to this day from some of the 55 million viewers. Always building on a common theme rooted in integrity and a "belief in what I can do" he has created a lasting impact that crosses the generations and continues to grow.
In 2000, the Canadian Institute of Child Health honoured Fred for his contribution to the well-being and safety of children. He is also a humble recipient of the Order of Canada, the highest recognition given to a Canadian citizen. One of his albums, Happy Feet was named Best Children's Album of the Year by the U.S.A's Entertainment Weekly and he is the first ever winner of the Prairie Music Award for Outstanding Children's Recording.
Joining Fred is Andy Griffith’s, long time singer, songwriter and musician whose kids grew up listening to Fred Penner. His show is all about audience participation and having some fun and will feature some of his to-tapping, sometimes goofy original songs.
This show promises to be a whole lot of fun for the whole family!
