Australian songwriter, performer and educator Woody Clark will be launching Woody’s World's new album Let’s Play! on Saturday, 7 December 2019 at The Melba Spiegeltent.
At the Let’s Play! album launch, Woody will hand out ukuleles to kids who want to play in the finale of the family friendly musical party at The Melba Spiegeltent.
Woody explains that ukuleles bring out the innocent joy in all of us, “All kids can be music makers. I love teaching children some basic chords and incorporating them into the show.”
Ukuleles, music and family have always been a symbolic focus for Woody, “It’s so refreshing seeing kids and families creating music together. Anyone can play a uke – it’s such an easy way for everyone to access music and learn some simple rhythm and melody.”
Exceptionally engaging and highly entertaining, Woody’s World is good old-fashioned fun – it’s a kaleidoscope of music and colour that blends doses of Dr Seuss and chunks of the Muppets with a taste of Woodstock.
Let’s Play! is a music adventure of physical theatre and crowd participation featuring the three-generations of Woody's World Family Band, as well as lively appearances by the vivacious puppets: Hercules and Jasmina.
Woody’s children, Tali, Jayda and Safin, have co-written and performed some of the songs featured in Let’s Play! and also form part of the touring Woody’s World Family Band.
Original new songs featured on Let’s Play! include the catchy ditty Uke Uke Uke, the dazzlingly tune called Starlight and the fun harmonies: Play All Day and The Party Song.
For over five years touring Australia with his band and mobile ukulele school, Woody is a music education consultation who has performed concerts and shows to more than 25,000 children at major festivals, events, schools and remote communities.
