I am a big Australian music lover, from way back when... but I am not so much in love with dumbed down 'wiggles' type music for children, and have minimised my kids exposure whenever possible.*
So when Arts Centre Melbourne offered me the chance to see Holly Throsby and her band The Hello Tigers perform songs her début childrens album, See! - at no other than The Famous Speigeltent - I jumped at the chance! Holly Throsby is an Australian singer, songwriter and musician. She has five solo albums and is one part of Seeker Lover Keeper.
Arts Centre Melbourne offers an engaging program for families and young people alike, an opportunity to experience the exciting world of live performance. "Our 2013 Families & Youth program is our largest and most exciting yet, offering something for all ages - tiny tots, kids and teenagers - plus things the whole family can enjoy together."
The perfect opportunity for the children to experience the fabulous Arts Centre and see the talented Holly perform. Aimed at ages 2-7 years "Inspired by inquisitive childlike logic, the natural world, and old musical favourites like Nilsson’s The Point! and Yellow Submarine. Holly sings about everything from motorboats, diamonds and kookaburras, to shadows, fish and the wide-eyed wonder of being young."
I am so excited about this one and am even more excited to be sharing it with you - I have one, four ticket family pass to give away for March 17th 2013. Plus you'll also receive the album See!

'Jody, this sounds fabulous! My children and I would love to see Holly.
My favourite childhood song would have to be one that we used to sing at church. It's called "Popcorn popping on the Apricot Tree". I still sing it to my children.
