Being a children’s entertainer requires a certain level of fearlessness and TiBert the Voyageur has it in spades. During his high-energy, 45-minute musical storytelling extravaganza, he effortlessly shares the stage with as many kids as want to participate. Encouraging active imagination, TiBert has them acting as woodworkers, blacksmiths and even mice during his stories of the voyageur life, both at Fort Gibraltar and on their monumental cross-Canadian canoe treks.

You don’t need to be bilingual to appreciate or participate in the show, but kids will most likely pick up a word or two of French. The highlight is the Kitchen Party, where TiBert and his young assistants compose a lively voyageur jig using a loop pedal and a canvas sack full of musical instruments.

Young children will find this show irresistible and even the adults may find themselves paddling along the rivers of their imaginations.
