    The Performers

    The Purple Pirate

    Dustin Anderson, a.k.a. The Purple Pirate, is an award-winning Children’s Performer whose career has taken him across the country and around the globe. This friendly buccaneer has performed for audiences from Vancouver to Thunder Bay. With a background in contemporary dance, Dustin integrates dance, music, magic, and comedy to take the audience on an unforgettable adventure that includes friendship, kindness, and caring.  http://purplepirate.com/

    Peter Puffin

    Guitar-slinger / songwriter Peter Lenton, aka Peter Puffin’s Whale Tales, has become a legendary addition to the Childrens Entertainer category around kids concert series and Festival circuits. Every show is unique and inspiring! Audience volunteers could get to lead and write songs, play percussion instruments, and wear wacky wildlife costumes and so much more! Peter engages all ages with his catchy blend of bluesy folk & uptempo, interactive, and heartfelt songs. Listen for gentle messages like: keeping the earth green, peace-making, and celebrating local and global community building. The Alberta-based Lenton was originally a decorated teacher and curriculum specialist. His students responded to his incredible energy with such enthusiasm, that he was inspired to take his singing and guitar playing to the stage full-time and never looked back. Some 15 years later, he is always evolving his storytelling skills, passion for the environment, and unflagging belief in children merging it all together into something fresh and inviting. Though he performs primarily for height efficient folks… (including tweens), helping them express their own artistic tendencies, he also writes and sings for grown-ups.  http://www.puffin.ca/
