ANDY G and FRIENDS - Children’s / Family Music

Andy Griffiths headshot with guitarCanadian Folk-Roots Artist, Andy Griffiths, has recently released his upbeat children’s album entitled ‘OUR CAT FLASH’. Featuring mostly songs Andy has written and a couple of classic children’s song favourites. This album was realised with the help of some very good friends. In fact … some of Canada’s finest musicians! Including Juno award winning, Stephen Fearing, who played some guitar on the album. 

‘OUR CAT FLASH’ is generally aimed at children 2 to 8 … but is enjoyable for kids of all ages! Children, their friends, families … and grandparents too! 

The fun Andy G and Friends have with their audience when performing a live show, is reflected in this lively studio album  … ‘OUR CAT FLASH’ . To accompany the album, there is now a beautiful children’s picture book available based on the song

‘ Our Cat Flash ‘. Award winning artist, Helen Griffiths, illustrate the children’s book and the album cover. 

 As well as entertaining at some wonderful festivals, theatres and schools …  Andy was thrilled to open a show for children’s entertainment icon, Fred Penner, at the Gravenhurst Opera House. Playing solo to a FULL house on Nov 10, 2018. Fred is a Canadian gem!

Andy plays most shows with his good friend Jay Burr.  ‘Tuba’ Jay plays … tuba, guitar & percussion and sings backing vocals. Not all at the same time of course!  When the show allows, Andrew Aldridge would join in on lead guitar and special guest, Lorretta Bailey joins in on backing vocals and percussion.

Andy would be happy to discuss possible workshops for school, and/or pre show, appearances.
