Audiences may not realize Matt Heaton’s children’s music is “children’s music!” First and foremost, it is groovy, engaging and fun. Playing with skill and whimsy on guitar & banjo, Matt brings in elements of rockabilly, folk, soul and surf to entertain adults as well as kids. With shockingly listenable versions of classics like “Wheels on the Bus” alongside original compositions like “Outside Toy,” Matt’s shows are a high energy explosion of all ages enjoyment and education. Warning: Singing along may take place!
Heaton is a skilled entertainer for kids, with a repertoire of kid-friendly folk & surf-inspired originals and reworked classics. Like musicians before him, he took a keen interest in music for kids after the birth of his son, leading engaging sing-alongs that he hoped adults could enjoy, too. Armed with a bundle of new and traditional material, he organized a whole lot of extra babysitting and created his new CD, “Happy You Made It.” Matt Heaton also performs in the well-known Irish music duo of Matt & Shannon Heaton.
