About Fern’s Easter Music for Kids
Three of Fern’s Easter Songs, THE CHOCOLATE BUNNY, THE EASTER DUCK’S PARADE, & THE EGG HUNT are being published by Elizabeth Axford in her “My Easter Fun Songbook”
Fern is a high-energy mixture of Shari Lewis and Raffi, sparking kids’ imaginations and making them laugh–all wrapped up in a hug!
Fern is a grown-up who never grew up and it shows–in the best possible way–through her music.
Her lively, toe-tapping melodies captivate the young and the young-at-heart by proving the things we all know to be true: teddy bears are essential, aliens are real (and they’re friendly!), the earth is a magical place, and, sometimes, the only pick-me-up we need is a little Irish jig.
USA Today recognized her talent when they recommended her Christmas album nationwide; children showed their affinity for her by requesting her songs so many times that she became one of the most requested artists on “The Playground,” a well-known children’s radio program on the Boston station WERS; Wireless Flash News was inspired to feature her from coast to coast; and her charisma even persuaded Virgin Mobile to present her as the face of their 2004 ad campaign.
A former dancer, pianist, and preschool director, Fern has drawn on her experiences and her degrees in education and music to develop original songs, stories, and interactive exercises that simultaneously teach and entertain children. In addition to performing live throughout New England, Fern has five CDs on the market: “Kids! Dance With Fern!”, “Kids! Christmas! Fern!”, “Kids! Off To Dreamland With Fern!”, “Fern, the Stars and the Planets” and “Hopping Into Easter With Fern”. “Angels Are Out With You Today” will soon be released.
It should come as no surprise, then, that Fern’s best friend is a 6-foot-tall chipmunk named Charlie–her costume-character companion during stage performances. In Fern’s own words, when she’s on stage with Charlie she is “in her element.”
