About Sharon and Bram:

Ashkenaz is thrilled to present at this year’s festival two of North America’s preeminent family entertainers, Sharon Hampson and Bram Morrison. They are best known as two thirds of the iconic trio Sharon, Lois & Bram, with whom they produced over 20 recordings, three song-books, six national TV specials, 65 episodes of The Elephant Show, and 52 of Skinnamarink TV. They have appeared in every major concert hall in Canada, and many 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 recordings, and JUNO Awards for Best Children’s Album. For their many years of providing the best in participatory music for children and their families, in 2002 Sharon, Lois and Bram were inducted into The Order of Canada, the highest civilian honour in the country. Sharon and Bram have carried on as a duo since Lois Lilienstein retired from live performing in 2000. A Sharon and Bram show is a sing-along concert for the entire family, featuring such well-loved favourites as "She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain," "Five Little Monkies,“ "One Elephant," "Tingalayo," and, of course, "Skinnamarink." For their performance at Ashkenaz, Sharon and Bram will add some songs from their common Yiddish heritage such as "I Had an Old Coat," "Der Rebbe Elimelech," "Oy Vey, Oy Vey," and the ever-popular "I’m a Little Latke."

“We love singing with our audiences; the sound of families singing together and the expressions of delight on the faces of parents and children as they share the music bring us deep satisfaction”  -Sharon and Bram
