Washboard Hank with special guests The Sparrows

Washboard Hank writes and performs very entertaining songs, and plays a number of instruments, including guitar, mandolin, banjo, dobro, “stradovarious washboard” and “kitchen sink tuba”. He has released several albums, including a children’s album called “Big Fun for Kids”. Based in Peterborough, Hank will be in Ottawa as part of a cross-Canada tour.

Founded in September, 2012, The Sparrows are home-schooled children between 4 and 10 years of age who love to sing. Singing develops cognitive, artistic and social skills while celebrating our shared human experience. The Sparrows have performed in concert halls, seniors’ homes and festivals, and have been featured on radio and television programs. Musical director Chris White composed several of the songs in the Sparrows’ extensive repertoire, including a song that celebrates the joys of home-schooling!
