DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND A SECOND SHOW HAS BEEN ADDED AT 4:30PM. TICKETS FOR THE 4:30PM SHOW GO ON SALE WED. SEPT 30 @ 12 NOON. Please note that switching between performances is not permitted.
A Raffi concert is best suited for children old enough to talk, sing or clap along. While Raffi's music is enjoyed by babies at home, the live music experience is much louder and very different than hearing the recorded songs at home. While babies are welcome, they may not enjoy a loud concert sing-along. The ticket policy of the theatre is that every person needs a ticket.
Raffi is a singer, songwriter, producer, author, lecturer and tireless advocate for children. He is best known for his work as a children's entertainer whose string of gold and platinum-selling recordings in North America includes his classic song, "Baby Beluga." Once called "the most popular children's singer in the English-speaking world"(Washington Post) and "Canada's all time children's champion"(Toronto Star), Raffi is also a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations' Earth Achievement Award. He has never advertised to children or made any commercial endorsements aimed at kids. His commitment to treating his young fans with respect changed society's outlook on music made for children.
In July 2014, Rounder Records released Love Bug Raffi's first new kids album in 12 years. A collection of 16 songs, this thoughtfully crafted body of work engages children in a broad range of themes including love, nature, playtime, chores, and teamwork music to charm the whole family!
"It's fun to be singing for children and families again, says Raffi. As well as singing many of my fans favorites, I look forward to sharing a song or two from my new album, Love Bug."
In 2010, Raffi founded The Centre for Child Honouring on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. With the motto "Respecting Earth & Child," the Centre is at the heart of a global movement that views honouring children as the best way to create sustainable, peacemaking societies.
