Fred has nurtured a generation of ‘Fred Heads’. Young people who grew up on his recordings and television series Fred Penner’s Place on Canadian TV – CBC 1985- 1997 and USA TV – Nick Jr. 1989 – 1992. and who are now in university.
Their intellectual discussions inevitably lead to talking about their childhood influences, and that is where Fred comes in.
When Fred visits campus life, he is inundated with hugs and stories from his legion of fans, all wanting to make the reconnection with their childhood idol. What they discover is that Fred hasn’t changed in his attitude toward them nor his desire to see that they are on a strong and positive life path. The performance engages like no other. The consummate entertainer, Fred carries the enthusiastic audience through his musical journey of early influences and the songs they remember from their younger years.
The evening is engaging and emotional, participation is a joy to behold!
