MEET JACK AND KITTY
Jack and Kitty are one of the most in-demand musical duos in North Amercia. Specializing in “organic vaudeville folk”, this Emmy Award winning acoustic duo love to perform concerts for both children and grownups.
The husband and wife duo are based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and perform over 300 shows a year. Recent appearances include: Minnesota State Fair, Mall of America and the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington DC. They even toured for the US Pentagon performing shows for military families stationed in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Jack and Kitty hosted a successful children’s television series which aired on over 150 PBS Kids member stations nationwide and in 175 countries on the AFN Family network. A brand new TV series for preschoolers will be launched in 2017…appropriately named The Jack and Kitty Show!
Kitty’s uncle is Bunny Wailer – you know, of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame? So music is literally in her blood. She grew up listening to a healthy blend of reggae, rap and R&B. At a young age, Jack discovered his vaudevillian great grandfather’s phonograph record collection and spent his childhood listening to cats like Bing Crosby, Al Jolson and Rudy Vallee. As fate would have it, oddball ukulele legend Tiny Tim moved in next door to the Norton household and somehow became Jack’s babysitter. Seriously.
That rich musical stew forms the blend of Jack and Kitty’s Emmy Award winning artistic approach. It’s organic and acoustic with nothing but positive vibes. Laid-back music steeped in tradition with one foot firmly in the future.
One reviewer hailed the duo as “Leon Redbone meets Alicia Keys or Tom Waits meets Beyoncé”.
