Earthworm Ensemble is a music project for kids and parents, with some of Los Angeles's best folk/country artists -- members of I See Hawks In L.A., Mike Stinson, The Chapin Sisters, Zachariah -- singing and playing fiddles, mandolins, guitars, horns, and steel.
We’re calling it family music, rather than just children’s music. We hope children and their parents can enjoy the songs together, and talk about some of the ideas in the songs.
They sing about the earthworm’s role in the plant cycle; about buffalo migration as told by a young buffalo; buying fresh corn at the farmer’s market and taking it home to cook; how to make pizza from scratch; trains, birds, walking in the woods, and a superhero team of Bear and Dog who've come to save the planet! The songs are folk, old timey, country rock, New Orleans second line, and even some funky beats.
A smart and raucous delight, the kind of sonic adventure that ranks up there with Marlo Thomas' classic "Free to Be You and Me," Harry Nilsson's "The Point" and anything from the Muppets in their heyday.
A long-time performing artist herself, the creation of Gwendolyn And The Good Time Gang awoke in Gwendolyn a passion for inspiring, entertaining, & educating young children (she is also a Certified Children’s Yoga Instructor). Gwendolyn hopes to inspire kids at a nearly age to pick up an instrument, create music and put on a show themselves!
A bonus: songs are performed in a manner parents can also enjoy! Whatever age you are, Gwendolyn and the Good Time Gang is sure to put a smile on your face.
