Skinnamarink Party with Sharon & Bram

Skinnamarink Party with Sharon & Bram

Tickets: $25.00 for adults and $15.00 for children under 12. Infants in arms (12 mos. & under) are free.

Venue: Trinity United Church

Event Description: We are thrilled to host a special celebration of Sharon and Bram‘s first picture book: Sharon, Lois & Bram’s Skinnamarink! Skinnamarink is a timeless anthem of love and inclusion. What does “skinnamarink” mean? You may not find its definition in a dictionary, but the meaning is clear to the generations of children who sang along: friendship, happiness, sharing, community and, ultimately, love. This song has been sung at weddings and in classrooms. It can be fun and silly – especially with the accompanying actions! And it has a way of bringing people together.

At this special book event, Sharon and Bram will perform a few of their favorite songs and will be joined on stage by special guest Whitney Barris. Following their short performance, there will be a meet and greet and an opportunity to take photos and get your copy of the book signed. Every child’s ticket will include one copy of Sharon, Lois & Bram’s Skinnamarink. Books included in the child’s ticket price can be picked up at the event- along with additional copies of Sharon, Lois & Bram’s Skinnamarink, which will be available for sale. Please note that this is a celebration of the book featuring a condensed musical set, not a full-length concert.
