What People Say About Ish . . .

 

MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE FOR US ADULTS

Thank you so much for the lovely CD you gave us at the Watcom Shell gas station on Sunday, May 15th.  Your CD was much more enjoyable for us adults than other kids CDs we have. The kids all love it and fell asleep listening to it on the rest of our trip home.

PERFORMANCE WAS WARM AND SENSITIVE, COMICAL AND LYRICAL AND HAD AN EXCELLENT RAPPORT   
    
“Ish’s Performance was warm and sensitive, comical and lyrical.  He had an excellent rapport with the children, relating to them with respect and genuine concern.  In this way I felt Ish was similar to Robert Munsch.  I felt both adult and child audience came away with more than just an hour of entertainment.  You came away feeling good about yourself and the world!”   
    
Elizabeth Cooper - Children’s Services the Library Gallery - Public Library, Cambridge, Ontario 
 

AN EDUCATIONAL AND FUN STYLE PERFORMANCE   
                                                                                          
“Ish’s concerts combine music, comedy and storytelling in an educational and fun style.  A great performance, we hope to see Ish return to Thunder Bay soon.”

BEND YOUR KNEES

Ish & Friends

This up-tempo Swing / Grass song focuses on taking good care of your back, whether at work or play.

It also highlights the thought that even Superman has learned to bend his knees when he's picking up things and take good care of his back.

WE WERE VERY PLEASED WITH THE EXPERIENCE 

We were very pleased with the experience of working with Ish on his CD, Never Say Never.  The kids were very proud of their accomplishments.  We and the Children learned a lot through the experience and would be happy to do another CD with him :)  I personally loved the CD; the songs were great and sounded fantastic.

MISUNDERSTOOD

Ish & Friends

Ish has chosen to end his CD with Misunderstood, a song he was introduced to as a teenager and with which he has always identified.

He chose to re-arrange it by adding some new lyrics and mixing it up with a Raggae-Blues groove and vibe, intended to rejuvenate this old Blues Classic made famous by Eric Burden & the Animals.

Yet, it was originally and specifically Authored and Composed, to be Recorded and Released by Blues Great, Nina Simone in 1964.
