Children’s entertainer Mr. Mojo set for acoustic show at Ellison’s

On Saturday, January 4, Ellison’s Cafe Acoustic Unplugged Sessions return with Mr. Mojo, followed by Sofiella Watt and Jimmy Maher

On Saturday, January 4, Ellison’s Cafe Acoustic Unplugged Sessions return with Mr. Mojo, who has been making music for 20 years and performing for kids for the past eight years.

He brings a high energy performance full of singing, dancing and joyful music. His songs encompass many different styles of music ranging from reggae to funk to folk and he writes about the things that he loves: food, silly animals, household appliances and having fun in life.

Sofiella Watt and Jimmy Maher are new musicians to our area from down under. She is a 23-year-old singer-songwriter, self taught guitarist and banjo plucker hailing from the wilderness of the Manning Valley in Australia.

“If we were a wanky wine label,” Watt said, “we would read something like this: ‘…a motley mix of winsome folk, bruised with blues and infused with banjo, with a hint of country, and spicy gypsy undertones.’”
