Chris Campbell’s music and singing are completely live and undoubtedly original, with a sound that is an acoustic blend of folk, pop, and Americana. His program is highly interactive…beyond the energetic music, the use of props, comedy, and motion facilitate engagement in the topic at hand.
Award winning artist, Valerie Leonhart Smalkin and Silly Goose present energetic song-filled performances, populated with a magical array of puppets, bold-voice talents, and contagious dances that will surely get you and your little ones up, moving, and laughing together. A recipient of Maryland State Arts Council Grants for theatre performance and non-classical composition, Val and her friends will delight the child with and in you!
Val’s book/cd combo, Springtime Dance, took gold in the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards for books with music. She will share the book through an array of puppets and music in this Springtime Dance program.
Val will also include song from her latest CDs Love Bug! and Sing! Sing! Sing!…and Dance that received Parents’ Choice recommended and approved awards.
