Children’s musician Will Stroet coming to Nelson

Will Stroet’s performances are often described as bilingual rock concerts for kids.

Will Stroet’s performances are often described as bilingual rock concerts for kids. Songs like “Bike Safety Boogie” and “Full of Beans” have the audience dancing and singing to the catchy beat.

Your child can experience this talented, energetic entertainer and songwriter at the gym at SelfDesign High in the Legion, across from the Nelson Library, on Tuesday, July 16 at 2 p.m.   Admission is by donation (recommended $2 per person or $5 per family).

The Nelson Public Library and the Kootenay Library Federation are excited about bringing Stroet to Nelson. He has done more than 750 shows across Canada and now stars in his own TV show, Will’s Jams, on Kids’ CBC.

Kim Wilson, head of programming for Kids’ CBC, said: “Will is a talented Canadian children’s entertainer who has a genuine connection with kids and sings fun, infectious and educational songs for the whole family.”

As a former French-immersion music teacher and a father, Stroet knows how to engage and entertain kids.

He discovered his talent for writing children’s music while completing his bachelor of education at University of BC. After releasing his first CD in 2005, Let’s All Dance, and receiving great reviews from families and event organizers, Stroet knew he had found his calling. In 2009, he left teaching to pursue a full-time career as a musician and has never looked back.

Stroet has released three English albums and three in French that have garnered national recognition, including a West Coast Songwriter’s Award, approval from the Parents’ Choice Awards and multiple nominations from the Western Canadian Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards and Sirius XM Indies (Canadian Independent Music Awards).
