Want an incredible live music experience that the whole family will genuinely enjoy? Bored of listening to kids’ film soundtracks on repeat (except The Greatest Showman obviously)? The award-winning David Gibb is always the answer to your prayers.

Lucky for us that this half term he is teaming up with three time Grammy nominee (for best children’s album) Brady Rymer who is hotfooting it across the pond for a storming joint family gig at The Met.

Following the launch of his cracking second album Climb That Tree (on which Brady Rymer featured in song Rain Rain (You Can Stay), we couldn’t be happier that David Gibb continues his mission to create great music specifcally for little and big kids to sing and boogie to together.

David has a well deserved cult following for his high energy performances of tunes that totally get stuck in your head for days. Blending folk, jazz, reggae and rock and roll expect to go on journeys of the imagination where anything is possible -teddies at discos, bears under stairs, trips to the moon, being able to scale the highest tree and wolves in schools.

We love that David’s performances are so infectious but are also brilliant stories in their own right – a winning combination to inspire and instill confidence in little songwriters and storytellers everywhere. We also love that he makes and wears the best shirts (which are so cool that they even have their own blog).

Brady Rymer is renowned in the States for his rootsy, accordian-laced pop and rock music which tackles big subjects including the celebration of all abilities and differing needs, while genuinely being blinking good tunes.

This brand new musical show promises to be winner winner this autumn holiday.
