Groove Baby Presents: Groove into the Woods

Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Venture into the deep dark woods on a jazz- and funk-fuelled family adventure for ages 3 – 7.

Who will we find and will they be bad or good?

Groove Into the Woods follows a collection of kooky characters on a magical adventure into a fairy tale forest where they learn some important lessons about who you can trust, who your friends are and who might eat you.

These lessons are all rolled up in a mix of storytelling, interactive music-making and solid groove from the Groove Baby Organ Trio.

In an engaging show that appeals to kids and adults alike, the Groove Baby Organ Trio brings to life the great Blue Note 1960s era.

Soul jazz, boogaloo, funk and hard bop inspired by greats like Jimmy Smith, Grant Green, Lonnie Smith and Kenny Burrell have a bit of soulful gospel thrown in for good measure.

Get your own groove on with simple physical and musical interactivity using body percussion and mobile phones.

You may have heard about Pippi Longstocking, the strongest girl in the world, at Imagine Children’s Festival this year. Now is your chance to be strong and brave, like Pippi, in a woodland adventure.
