Music for Kids that adults like too!
The recipe for fun? We take a scoop of toe-tapping tunes, add a dash of silliness, then rattle and strum until we’re ready to fall over. “Rattle and Strum” gets kids of all ages dancing, singing, and having fun. With Heather on guitar and Steve on drums, this highly interactive band from Calgary, Alberta, Canada leaves nobody out, and is known for original music that parents enjoy too.
A side project of Heather Blush and The Uppercuts, Rattle & Strum are an irresistible combination. Their self-titled first children’s album was released in August 2013, supported by a grant from the AFA. It received a prestigious Parents’ Choice Gold Award, their highest stamp of approval, along with nominations for a Western Canadian Music Award and a Canadian Folk Music Award (alongside Juno winner Helen Austin and superstar Fred Penner). Armed with catchy tunes, great grooves, visual props, and an incredible sense of fun, this is a show that no one will forget soon!
Their second album, Ants in My Pants, was released in May 2018! Nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award, it includes 15 exciting new original tunes covering topics such as wild turkeys, marshmallows, sneezing, pocket contents, the mysterious superhero Meatball Man, and of course, ants in pants!
