Praise For FAMILY FOLK SHOW:
“Overall: 11/10 – A HUGE family hit. I would say Megson have definitely hit the nail on the head, appealing to toddlers and their families – our three-year old is obsessed (only word for it) and the older two love Megson & their songs as well – and not just because they’re humouring their little sister. Mummy & Daddy had a great time too, and loved seeing the girls thoroughly enjoying the experience at their first ever gig. ” – KIDDYCHART.COM
“I really liked dancing with my sisters at the front and popping the bubbles! It was REALLY exciting. I want to see them again!” – PHOEBE (AGED 3)
“Baby And The Band is a slightly surreal tale of a family folk band where ‘…Baby plays the banjo and doggie plays the drums. Grandma plays the bass guitar with nothing but her thumbs…’ attached to the catchiest of tunes. And with All The Shops Have Fallen Down the older kids will giggle at the thought of buying a lump of meat that smells like grandma’s feet or a pair of tights full of fleas of mites. The fact that it is equally entertaining and accessible to children and adults alike is a real bonus.” THE ADOPTION SOCIAL
