Fred Penner & The Cat’s Meow

A gentle giant with kind eyes and an undeniable ability to make you feel good about yourself, Fred Penner is a musical master who has brought commitment, consistency, and depth, to audiences across North America for almost 30 years. A recipient of the Order of Canada and multiple JUNO Awards, Penner's 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 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. The first children's entertainer to headline at the Los Angeles Amphitheater, this four-time recipient of the Parents' Choice Award and the man Los Angeles Parent called the "Canadian Minister of Positivity" has successfully transformed children's entertainment into a family affair. More than the music, the two-time Juno winner (equivalent of a Grammy) for Best Children's Album Sing with Fred and eight-time nominee's body of work is about energy and emotional connection. The guy who crawled magically out of that hollow log for 12 seasons and nearly 900 episodes in the hit CBC TV show Fred Penner's Place receives fan mail to this day from some of the 55 million American viewers where the show ran for four years on the U.S.'s Nickelodeon. Always building on a common theme rooted in integrity and a "belief in what I can do" he has created a lasting impact that crosses the generations and continues to grow.
