Central Alberta kids add excitement to Mary Lambert’s new children’s album

Lambert performs on Friday, May 12, in Leduc

Kids from Red Deer, Sylvan Lake and Penhold can be heard on a new album by children’s entertainer Mary Lambert.

Singin’ Along and Adventure Songs is 11th solo album from Lambert, a two-time Juno Awards nominee. In the last five years, Lambert moved from Ontario to Alberta and tended to a relative with cancer. It took her two years to shake off the sadness and create her latest sing-along dance-along album, with the help of some exuberant hand-picked kids, who contributed singing, laughing and pirate noises.

Among the Ontario and Alberta children who can be heard on the CD of original, traditional and popular songs are Ava Rodrigues of Penhold, Lexus Hardy of Sylvan Lake, and Teagan Carlyle and Dalany Smith of Red Deer.

Lambert has received ten awards from the United States, including Parents’ Choice Award Winner, iParenting Award Winner, Preferred Choice Award Winner, and Dr. Toy, Best Children’s Vacation Product Award Winner. Since 1993, she has toured and performed over 3,000 shows at schools, libraries and music festivals throughout Canada.

Her closest concert is in Leduc at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 12, at the Maclab Centre for the Performing Arts. Lambert will perform with students from Linsford Park School. For ticket information, please visit www.ticketpro.ca. (Half the profits from the show will be donated to the Leduc school).
