Canadian treasures Sharon (Hampson) and Bram (Morrison) announced recently that a performance on June 2nd at Théâtre Maisonneuve in Montreal has been added to the duo’s sold-out 40th Anniversary Farewell Tour. As part of their year-long anniversary celebration, this concert marks the final opportunity for Montreal fans to say good-bye and Skinnamarink with Sharon & Bram for the very last time.
“Many of us grew up with or raised our kids on Sharon, Lois & Bram’s music,” said Jeff Parry (whose Calgary-based company is co-presenting the Montreal date with Rubin Fogel Productions) “and we wanted to give all fans a chance to thank Sharon & Bram for the decades of music and countless concerts that have become an important part of our shared history.”
Sharon & Bram’s 40th Anniversary Farewell Tour is part of the duo’s Thank You for the Music initiative, meant to shine a light on the importance of coming together to sing – as families and as communities all across Canada – to embrace the values of togetherness, diversity and inclusiveness. The initiative includes the release of six new singles, including The Colour Song (released last November) and The Hug Song, which was recently released. The last single will be a brand-new version of their beloved trademark song Skinnamarink with additional lyrics that will launch a national Canadian simultaneous singalong. The duo also plans to publish a picture book of Skinnamarink through Tundra Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
Since 1978, Sharon Hampson and Bram Morrison have been pre-eminent in all aspects of family entertainment across North America as members of the trio Sharon, Lois & Bram. Together, the threesome produced over 20 recordings, beginning with their iconic One Elephant, Deux Éléphants. They have appeared in every major concert hall in Canada and many in the United States including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Centre. They also performed at the White House in Washington. They have received countless awards, including Gold and Platinum albums and JUNO awards for Best Children’s Album. To date, they have sold millions of albums worldwide and over 18 million people have viewed the Elephant Show Skinnamarink. For their years of work providing the best in participatory music for children and their families, Sharon and Bram, along with Lois, have been inducted into The Order of Canada, the highest civilian honour in the country.
