Will Stroet (centre) and his Backyard Band will perform on Nov. 17 in North Delta.

Where there’s a Will, there’s a concert

Will Stroet and Backyard Band perform at the Firehall Centre for the Arts on Nov. 17.

Will Stroet and his Backyard Band will perform an hour-long family concert on Nov. 17 at 10:30 a.m. at the Firehall Centre for the Arts, 11489 84 Ave.

It will feature songs from Stroet’s new English- and French-language albums “Just Imagine” and “Imagine.”

The albums, produced by Juno-award winner Steve Dawson, have an eclectic mix of styles with folk, blues, rock, reggae and samba influences about topics that kids can relate to, such as colouring, trains, swimming, dancing and animals.

Will’s three-year-old daughter, Ella, was the inspiration for songs such as “Ella’s Umbrella” and “Daddy Daughter Day.”

Before making the leap to becoming a full-time children’s entertainer in 2009, Stroet taught French immersion music at an elementary school in Vancouver. Since 2005, he has performed more than 850 shows at festivals, theatres and schools across Canada and has released six other albums and a DVD of videos.

“Will’s Jams” currently airs on Kids’ CBC weekday mornings.

This year, eight songs from “Just Imagine” will be made into Will’s Jams videos for Kids’ CBC.

Tickets are $10 (over age one) and are available at the door or in advance by calling 604-596-4485 or emailing vwong@delta.ca.

Doors open at 10 a.m.
