The JUNO Award-winning children’s music super-duo Splash’N Boots are bringing their third annual holiday tour to Kingston today, December 20. The performers, who originally came together as a musical act for a class project at Queen’s University when Nick Adams & Taes Leavitt were students, will hit the Grand Theatre stage at 6pm.
The tour comes on the heels of their announcement of a brand new album, The Big Heart Journey, which was inspired by parents reaching out to Splash’N Boots and sharing how their children were going through some tougher real life situations from being nervous about an operation to divorce and asking if there was any way the duo could help them out in those areas.
The Big Heart Journey album is made up of “30 ‘Heart Hugs’ (tracks) of guided dynamic meditations with a ‘made-for-kids’ spin that encourages movement, dancing and fun energy – the album aims to help guide children in becoming more loving, more caring, and more in touch with their own emotions and those of the people they interact with. Each track focuses on daily life, with meditative programs that can be done sometimes alone, sometimes with other people, sometimes lying down and sometimes on your feet dancing!”
On television, Splash’N Boots appear daily in over 8.5 million homes across Canada with their number one TV show, which is broadcast daily on Canada’s top children’s television networks, Treehouse TV and Disney Jr. Canada, as well as the worldwide streaming platform Kidoodle, garnering over 1 million views in the first 6 months on the platform. They have shared both stage and screen with Canadian icon, Fred Penner, as well as world renowned children’s entertainers, The Wiggles.
