A child’s first concert is a magical time, and it’s with that in mind that Seanster and the Monsters aim to present a concert event that is fun and accessible for every member of the family. Drawing on years of experience performing for both children and adults, their live shows and their recordings are energetic, interactive and hilarious.

Led by Sean Hogan, veteran children’s performer and honourable mention winner in the International Songwriting Competition, Seanster and the Monsters are a festival favourite across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Northwestern Ontario. With nominations for a Western Canadian Music Awards, an Independent Music Award, a win at the Parent’s Choice Awards, their 2014 debut full-length album, “Yay!” spans genres from folk to hip-hop, from rock to polka. Having been compared to They Might be Giants meets The Muppets, the Monsters mix comedy, melody, and groove to give families a shared experience that has something for everybody.

Admission is FREE!

Doors 1:30PM | Showtime 1:30PM-2:30PM
