As part of the festival youth program, Saskatchewan-born Carmen Campagne will present three shows that will take audience members of all ages along on a whirlwind celebration of songs, featuring children’s favourites from her album “Sur la ferme de Grand-père” and earlier recordings. Accompanied by her adorable barnyard animals, her effervescent and colourful repertoire will take children and their parents along on the wildest adventures, introducing them to traditional Louisiana dancing with “Ne lâche pas la patate”, visiting the market with “Mon père m’envoie au marché”, and discovering Mexico with “Carlos Cocorico”.
As a teacher and singer-songwriter-composer, Carmen Campagne has become a children’s idol throughout the francophone world. Nicknamed “the children’s Diva”, she has sold more than 1 million records in France and in Canada. She is a four-time winner of the Award Félix in the “Best children’s album” category, a Juno Award, as well as a Parent’s Choice Award in the United States. She is a member of the Order of Canada and her television show “Carmen à la campagne” is broadcast on the TFO channel.
