Live virtual concert - Hallowe'en Costume Party - a musicwrap







"Simply the best musicians for children in North America, and probably the world."—Toronto Star

What's Up ?

What do Sharon and Randi and their family do for Halloween during a pandemic? They dress up in costumes and make music together, of course! Fans of all ages are invited to dress up in their Halloween attire and join Sharon and Randi for a very special LIVE virtual show, SKINNAMARINK with Sharon and Randi, Back by Popular Demand! on Friday, October 30, at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

Just as legendary musicians Sharon, Lois & Bram brought happiness to four generations of children and their grown-ups, Sharon Hampson and her daughter Randi are continuing to share the music of Sharon, Lois and Bram with yet another generation of families. Through this up-close-and-personal sing-along gathering, and like their first virtual concert, Live in your Living Room, they are planning a real family affair featuring Sharon and Randi, Randi's sons Ethan and Elijah, their girlfriends Clare and Sofia, and Randi's beau Jim.

At this Halloween Costume Party, viewers will be able to see each other's costumes and sing along with each other and the performers. Conceived as a "by family, for family" experience, the show will include some spooky Halloween-themed songs for all ages, along with such well-loved Sharon, Lois & Bram favourites as "Grandpa’s Farm," "Five Little Monkeys," One Elephant," "Tingalayo," and, of course, "Skinnamarink."

In Their Own Words

"We wanted to find a fun, safe way to celebrate Halloween with our audience. The idea of dressing up and singing seems like a perfect way to be together” says Sharon Hampson. "We are thrilled to have this chance to once again see the smiling faces of our guests singing along with favourite tunes, old and new."

"The best thing about our first virtual family concert was getting to watch everyone singing along together from their homes. It really felt like we were all connected," adds Randi Hampson. "We're especially excited to see kids (and maybe adults) dressed up in their fun Halloween costumes!"

As an added bonus, Sharon and Randi will be looking for some audience input on the song choices. Early bird ticket purchasers will have a chance to select and introduce a song during the concert. And those who purchase tickets and attend this show will be entered in a contest for a chance to win a special Sharon, Lois & Bram prize package or a personal Zoom meeting with Sharon and Randi.

About Sharon 

Since 1978, Sharon has been pre-eminent in all aspects of family entertainment across North America as a member of the trio Sharon, Lois & Bram. Together, the threesome produced 21 full-length albums, beginning with their iconic, triple platinum One Elephant, Deux Γ‰lΓ©phants. They have appeared in every major concert hall in Canada and many of the most prominent venues in the United States, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, and the White House. They have received countless awards, including Gold and Platinum Records and JUNO awards for Best Children’s Album, and have sold millions of albums worldwide. For their years of work providing the best in participatory music for children and their families, Sharon & Bram, along with Lois, were inducted into The Order of Canada, their country's highest honor.

Sharon, Randi & Bram have been engaged in other creative ventures, including the 2019 release of a JUNO-nominated album, Sharon & Bram and Friends, produced by Randi Hampson. Their picture book, Sharon, Lois & Bram's Skinnamarink, with additional lyrics written by Randi Hampson, was published by Penguin Random House in 2019 and has become a critically acclaimed best-seller with more than 50,000 copies sold.

About Sharon and Randi

 Following Bram’s retirement, and with his encouragement, Sharon and her daughter Randi continue to share the music of Sharon, Lois & Bram with fans and friends, old and new.

While Randi's first memories involve singing with Sharon, more recently, Lois, unable to perform with Sharon at a holiday concert, enlisted Randi to perform onstage alongside her mother in Lois' place. Randi’s song lyrics and voice can be heard on several tracks of the 2019 album she produced, Sharon & Bram and Friends. Fans had the chance to see her performing live countless times throughout Sharon & Bram’s Farewell Tour. Sharon and Randi are excited to be singing the songs of Sharon, Lois & Bram (many introduced to the trio by Randi) with a new generation of musical friends.
