I think most of you know that The Book Broads are parents to young-ish kids. We love to read books to them, have them read to us, and we also love to play music in the house and in our vehicles – music uses words, and that is what we love! Angela’s son loves Signing Time and he is amazing at sign language, Peggy’s daughter loves listening to The Bee Gees (want to see her disco moves), my kids by default listen to Neko Case, The Dr. Horrible Soundtrack etc. We do however, all agree on two favourite kids bands… The Kerplunks (we hope to talk to them soon) and Bobs and Lolo.
I had the chance to talk to Juno-nominated Bobs and Lolo last week, and talked to them about music, words and their Juno nominations for Best Children’s Album. Here is our video out on the street – it was cold, but be thankful you could not smell the decaying herring roe. See, video does have its advantages! The ladies are lovely and my kids were star-struck. Check out www.bobsandlolo.com for more about them and their shows.
