Of neighbours and earth at ACT

Award-winning Bobs & LoLo will kick off B.C. Family Day in Maple Ridge on Monday.

Award-winning Bobs & LoLo will kick off B.C. Family Day in style at the Arts Centre and Theatre in Maple Ridge on Monday.

Robyn Hardy of North Vancouver and Lorraine Pond of East Vancouver are two-time Juno nominated singer-songwriters and stars of the Treehouse TV series Sing, Dance, and Play with Bobs & LoLo. They have been singing together since they met as children on Vancouver Island and share their musical adventures on stage and on screen.

The duo engage kids on educational topics about the environment, and aim to inspire young audiences to care about themselves, their neighbours and the planet, according to Hardy.

She said their inspirational and educational songs have “created fans among children and adults alike, and their performances are always sure to get the audience up and dancing.”

Bobs & LoLo have been nominated for two Juno awards, in 2010 and again in 2012. In addition, they’ve won numerous awards, including a silver honour at the Parents’ Choice Award in 2007, two gold Parents’ Choice Awards in 2008 and 2009, a children’s music web award in 2008, a Canadian indie  award nomination for favourite children’s artist in 2009, and best children’s recording of the year from the Western Canadian Music Alliance in 2009.

The event gets underway Monday, Feb. 9 at 1 p.m.

Single tickets are $15 or a family four pack goes for $50. They are available  at www.theactmapleridge.org.
