IMPORTANT: The Sharon & Randi Singalong has been postponed to the Fall of 2022.
Just as Sharon, Lois & Bram brought happiness to four generations of children and their grown-ups, Sharon Hampson and her daughter Randi have continued to share the music of Sharon, Lois and Bram with yet another generation of families.
This live, in person singalong will be a real family affair featuring Sharon & Randi, Randi's sons Ethan and Elijah, and Randi's beau Jim. Sharon & Randi will also welcome Chelmsford native, now Nashville based artist and music business executive Jacy Dawn Valeras who will perform a couple of songs with the duo.
ABOUT SHARON, LOIS & BRAM ... AND RANDI!
From 1978 onward, Sharon, Lois & Bram were preeminent in all aspects of family entertainment across North America and other parts of the world. Together, the threesome produced 21 full-length albums, starting with their iconic, triple platinum One Elephant, Deux Éléphants. They appeared in many of the most prominent venues in the United States including The Kennedy Center, the White House, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Broadway’s Palace Theatre, as well as every major concert hall in Canada. They received countless awards, including Gold and Platinum Records and JUNO awards for Best Children’s Album, and sold millions of albums worldwide. They also starred in two critically acclaimed television series: The Elephant Show (Nickelodeon in the U.S. and CBC in Canada) and Skinnamarink TV (The Learning Channel in the U.S. and CBC in Canada). Sharon, Lois & Bram were Goodwill Ambassadors for UNICEF in North and South America, for which they received the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award. For their years of work providing the best in participatory music for children and their families, Sharon, Lois & Bram were inducted into The Order of Canada, their country's highest honour.
Sharon Hampson and Bram Morrison carried on together for nearly two decades after Lois Lilienstein stepped away from live performing in 2000 and later died in 2015. Sharon & Bram maintained a busy schedule of concerts that ranged from “sweet and simple” folksy duo shows to larger productions featuring members of the versatile Skinnamarink Band. Fans of Sharon, Lois & Bram returned to Sharon & Bram’s concerts as young adults or with their children and their children’s children. They knew every word and every action and greeted the duo as they would a treasured member of the family.
Following Bram’s retirement from touring, and with his encouragement, Sharon and her daughter Randi have continued to share the music of Sharon, Lois & Bram, performing in both live and virtual settings as Sharon & Randi.
As co-producer, Randi Hampson has been a driving force behind the new album, Sharon, Lois & Bram Best of the Best Live. Randi has also contributed significantly to other recent Sharon & Bram creative ventures, including producing and singing on the JUNO-nominated album, Sharon & Bram and Friends, and writing additional lyrics or the Penguin Random House picture book, Sharon, Lois & Bram's Skinnamarink, an award-winning best seller with more than 60,000 copies sold since its 2019 publication. Several more picture books are now in development.
