and combine them in just the right way to make a good lyric."

BOB KING CONCERTS IN SCHOOLS

Bob King is a Canadian songwriter and family entertainer and a certified teacher who has been entertaining both children and adults for over thirty years now.  He gives concerts in schools all across Canada and the U.S.A.  Bob's elementary school shows last about one hour and are geared for children k - 8.  (yes, grade eights enjoy it too.)   He also does a seperate show for high schools

Bob's elementary show is a combination of music, theatre, humour and principles of Character Education and positive youth development.  Bob believes in the importance of sending good messages to kids, but he also believes that you must first win them over by showing them that you know how to have fun.  He says, "they've got to like you if they are going to listen to you on important matters that will help them to make good choices.  They need to know that you know how to have fun.".  If anyone's songs and performing skills can do that, it is Bob King's.  His songs are imaginative and clever and sometimes even a little bizzare.  That is why children love him and the teachers at the schools where he has performed will attest to that.

Children know many of Bob's songs such as 'Sandwiches are Beautiful' (recorded by various artists) and 'Brother For Sale' (recorded by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen).  Both songs have sold in the millions.  His picture book 'Sittin On The Farm' also  sold worldwide and was translated into several different languages. 

Free CDs are available to schools who book Bob for a show so that the children can familiarise themselves with the music.    A show description and a description of his optional songwriting workshops (for grades 4-6) are available upon request.

Children and teachers love Bob King's songs because they are catchy, clever, fun and safe.  He has been nominated for a Juno award and has won the 'Just Plain Folks' award for best children's album in the United States in 2001.  In 2005 his album 'Rock and Roll Teachers' won the Outstanding children's award at the Western Canadian Music Awards.  Book now if you want to have this internationally known Canadian songwriter perform at your school.   For references and a touring schedule, please checkthe touring & references menu items.  The cost for a concert is very reasonable (as low as $350 per show) and for bookings you can email Bob at bobbyk@thenewpaths.com or phone (306)345-2804.  For bookings in Winnipeg and surrounding area, please call Alison Simard at (204)782-0659 or fax (204) 282-0469.
