Rattle and Strum gets kids of all ages dancing, clapping, singing, and playing. With Heather (aka ‘Strum’) on guitar, Steve (aka ‘Rattle’) on drums, you on percussion, and everybody singing- this highly interactive band leaves nobody out and is known for original music that parents enjoy too. Heather, formally trained as a music therapist, has been teaching children through music for years. Steve, who also teaches music to youngsters, has been playing drums since he could hold the sticks. Together Rattle and Strum are an irresistible combination with an unbeatable recipe for fun.

With a grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Rattle and Strum released their first, self-titled, album in August 2013 and it quickly received a prestigious Parents’Choice Gold Award. Although it is a childrens album, ‘Rattle and Strum’ spent 2 weeks charting in the top 30 on Albertas public radio station CKUA.  Armed with catchy tunes, grooves, visual props, extra instruments for the audience members, a great sense of fun and silliness, this is a show that will not be forgotten.
