This humorous version of Jack’s adventure climbing the magical beanstalk is sure to please our littlest audience members.

He draws inspiration from American
roots music including old time country, blues & roots rock & roll. He might throw in a little New Orleans funk, some Trinidadian calypso, a little reggae &….well, you get the picture! Then again, only by listening will you really start to appreciate what his unique musical vision has to offer!
