March 13 @ The Pitt Pub (6138 Student Union Blvd)
Every Canadian kid’s musical hero is coming to the Pitt Pub. For over 25 years Fred Penner has been entertaining young and old across genres and mediums and I hope to God that he’s bringing puppets to sing with (probably not though). Originally from Winnipeg, he is without a doubt one of Canada’s great entertainers. Seriously guys, if you have a soul you owe it to yourself to check this out. More details after the jump.
A gentle giant with kind eyes and an undeniable ability to make you feel good about yourself, this musical master brings 25 years of commitment, consistency and depth to a career that skillfully blends the many genres of performing and communication. Dubbed “Mr. Multi-Media” by Billboard Magazine, his diverse repertoire includes a prolific 12 Children’s Albums, countless energetically packed live shows for throngs of eager audiences across North America, composing the music for APTN/YTV’s Tipi Tales, and writing the score and hosting the TV documentary The Simple Way. He has, without a doubt, established himself as a fundamental part of the North American family entertainment scene. And whether it’s through CDs, videos, books or television, his cornerstone philosophy remains the same: absolute trust that his work can make a difference.
