SHOWCASING: SATURDAY OCT 5 – THE OLD FIRE HALL 2:30PM
Eco-singer Remy Rodden—a bilingual, rich-voiced teacher and biologist – is committed to helping children learn about nature. He’s a clever songwriter, deeply concerned about the environment, and his wholly entertaining show ignites both the young and the young at heart. Remy’s target is to inspire wonder and foster responsible action with his fun and poignant curriculum-connected songs.
Remy’s many years as an adventurer, camp leader, educator and entertainer uniquely position him to delight family audiences. He draws on his experience of countless school presentations, travels and performances in all continents (yes, even Antarctica) and a wilderness life in Canada’s Yukon Territory. He has degrees in biology and environmental, outdoor, and experiential education and puts them to full use in his music!
Remy’s first family album Think About The Planet (1997) has proved an enduring classic, with songs about biodiversity, invasive species, and more. The song “What’s That, Habitat?” is part of United Nations music compilation to celebrate the Earth Charter, and the title track is part of the Playlist for the Planet which includes artists like Raffi, Cockburn and Lightfoot. An adult album In The Hills was released in 2011. Remy is currently in the studio working on a second collection of “not-for-kids-only” environmental tunes, due for release in September 2019.
