This tour marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Raffi's first and still best-selling album, Singable Songs for the Very Young. Raffi is a singer, songwriter, producer, author, lecturer, and tireless advocate for children. He is best known for his work as a children's entertainer whose string of gold and platinum-selling recordings in North America includes his classic song, "Baby Beluga". Once called "the most popular children's singer in the English-speaking world" (Washington Post) and "Canada's all-time children's champion" (Toronto Star), Raffi is also a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations' Earth Achievement Award. He has published three books and holds four honorary degrees. He has never advertised to children or made any commercial endorsements aimed at kids. His commitment to treating his young fans with respect changed society's outlook on music made for children.
