Juno winner Norman Foote will be performing at the ACT next week with a little help from 190 Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows students.

This celebrated performer from Vancouver has created a special niche in the music world and amassed a cross-generational following. His musicality is like no other, mixing clever hooks, witty wordplay and comedy to great effect.

The upcoming concert will feature songs from his newest album Always Be Yourself.

Foote will be accompanied by a choir comprised of students from Grades 2 to 6 from Pitt Meadows, Highland and Albion elementary schools.

What makes Foote so great is his ability to find subject matter that challenges and engages his audience – both young and old. He puts his theatrical and comedic talents to use as he weaves stories and paints musical imagery that audiences respond to immediately.

His claim to fame are his “props with an attitude.” Simple by nature, fascinating by delivery, these characters enter the stage as inanimate objects and with the element of surprise and improvisation come to life, never failing to bring the house down with laughter and applause.
