You can expect great original songs, energy to burn and plenty of participation when Magoo comes to play. Kids love his performances. Grownups too, find themselves caught up in the songs, stories and merriment. A special Dinosaur inlaid guitar, a mandolin, his trusty ukulele and a suitcase full of fun transform any space to his place. It’s an invitation for the audience to ‘step into Magoo’s world’ and sing songs about dinosaurs, space ships, constellations, messy rooms, turtles, school buses and beautiful rivers. There’s always fun to be had and lots to learn. Seasonal shows are part of the repertoire and he can even write you a song for a special occasion!
Magoo is the 2017 recipient of Folk Music Ontario’s Estelle Klein Award.
Since 2003 he has travelled regularly to Indigenous communities with ArtsCanCircle. Founded by harmonica ace Mike Stevens , ArtsCanCircle collects and distributes instruments, and brings music and visual art to youth in the north.
