‘By the far the best folk-skiffle-eat-your-greens-market-stall outfit you'll see at anywhere this year!’ - Children’s Media Conference 2017.
The BarrowBand came about after Malcolm (band leader) saw a famous cook trying to get children to identify various fruit and veg without much success (leeks were kiwis, apparently). He immediately started writing songs about them, and not long after formed The BarrowBand.
The band’s collective of musicians, performers and artists, create a performance that is unsparingly musical, eclectic in style, energetic, educational, funny and surprising. The band are multi generational in age (24 to 68) and appeal with fans of all ages. They are accompanied at all performances by their colourful kinetic market barrow featuring amongst others swaying oranges, singing kiwis, dancing broccoli and partying mushrooms plus the occasional animal. Feel the power of cauliflower!
