Farmer's Markets love Russ!
Russ specializes in performing music for all ages! When there are no children around, Russ has a treasure trove of popular folk and pop songs to choose from, keeping all patrons entertained for hours.
"Russ has the same sense of sincerity and simplicity that helped Raffi connect with preschoolers" (Toronto City Parent Magazine).
This guitar and kazoo playing kindergarten teacher has been thrilling children of all ages with his unique and interactive brand of musical entertainment since 1994. Whether performing at a local event, or for a world wide audience on "RussTV", Russ delivers the perfect mix of original music and traditional classics.
The success of his Youtube channel RUSS TV (over 2 million views) is due to his ability to keep children entertained with fun action songs, and by giving the young viewer a sense of being part of the experience. The live concerts are just as interactive, as the audience is encouraged to join in using instruments from a bottomless bin of shakers.
With over 17 years experience as a primary educator, it's no surprise that a Russ performance is interactive, fun, and combines several elements of music theory and early literacy. Russ has performed at Folk Festivals, Schools, Malls, Farmer's Markets, Libraries, Daycares, Corporate Functions, and Family Literacy Events. Consider making Russ part of your next special event.
