CJ and his Puppets

This cultural music show stars ‘CJ and his puppets’ and explains the origins of folk music from different countries. As well as being an accomplished musician and entertainer, CJ is also a skilled ventriloquist (the kids love seeing the age old art of ventriloquism and often haven’t been previously exposed to it!). With his hilarious puppet friends Nigel Crocodile, Lewis Lion, Scratch Dog, and Roger Monkey, CJ’s journey begins in Spain where the children are introduced to the Flamenco Guitar and an interactive song that helps teach basic Spanish language. Then, just like the settlers did many years ago CJ moves from Europe to the Appalachian mountains of North America for a good ol’ ‘hoe down’. The show features songs that were purposely written for it, as well as folk classics such as The Grand Old Duke of York, and Home Among The Gumtrees. Catchy lyrics, audience interaction, and quick to learn dance moves are all combined to make this exploration of folk music both an informative and very entertaining experience.

Ideal for: Libraries, community events, kids parties and holiday programs!
