ABOUT JACK AND KITTY
Jack and Kitty are high school sweethearts that play Organic Vaudeville and Jug Band Folk for All Ages. They are an Emmy Award winning musical duo that also makes critically acclaimed films and television. Based in Minnesota, they love to perform concerts nationwide and play a variety of folk instruments including: banjo, guitar, ukulele, washboard, jug, kazoo, harmonica, whizbang, rumba box and much more. Their live concerts are available in several formats to accommodate a wide range of budgets…with discount pricing for libraries! The Minneapolis Star Tribune hailed them as “one of the most entertaining groups in the midwest!”
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 in Jamaica 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 (“Tip Toe Thru The Tulips”) moved 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 artistic approach. It’s organic and acoustic with nothing but positive vibes: laid-back music steeped in 1920s traditions (American jug band and Jamaican mento) with one foot firmly in the future. One reviewer described the duo as “Leon Redbone meets Alicia Keys or Tom Waits meets Beyoncé.”
The husband and wife songsters 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 toured for the US Pentagon performing shows for military families stationed in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. From 2012 to 2015, 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 educational TV series for preschoolers will be offered to PBS Kids member stations nationwide in early 2018…appropriately named Jack And Kitty: FamJam!
In 2017 they performed concerts at over 250 public libraries across the country!
