Battersby Duo

The Battersby Duo first broke onto the Children's music scene in 1983.
Their backgrounds in Early Childhood Development, Sociology and Philosophy helped them formulate ideas for writing songs for children that nurtured and helped young minds in the building block stages of their development.

By 1989 the Battersby Duo were the hosts of Kids Place, the Emmy award winning TV show, then made guest appearances on Sesame Street and The Today Show on NBC. Fred Rogers of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood said of his friends "We will remember with pleasure that The Battersby's are a part of our neighborhood."

1992 heralded the dawn of classic BatDuo music with the release of "A Tail of Too Sillies." and songs like "I'm a Germ" "Pat your Hands," and "Elephant's Toenails" became classics with families around the USA.

The American Library Association called The Duo "A Banquet of Silliness designed to please the most refined of Juvenile Palates."

While performing at a Sesame Street program in Washington DC in 1993 a friend of Hillary Clinton, who was attending the show, saw The Duo, and was so impressed with their abilities, that she mentioned them to the First Lady who a month or so later, invited them to perform for her and the children of Washington, at The White House. The Battersby's were invited to perform for the next 6 years for The President and First Lady at numerous White House functions. They also performed at numerous fundraisers, including the now historic "Our Children our Future" rally of 1993/4


The Battersby Duo is a touring band for Children and Families. They tour 200 days a year performing to Children and Families between the ages of Stroller and 10. Winners of 3 Parents Choice Awards and an Emmy, they've performed 6 times at The White House for the President of the United States, and are considered to be one of the finest Musical Comedy Teams for Children and Families in the USA today.

The Battersby Duo has also appeared on the Today Show on NBC, and were hosts of the popular Children's TV series "Kid's Place" in the 1980's and early 1990's. They have also appeared on TV shows on PBS, CBS, ABC, UPN, Fox and NBC and have influenced millions of Children over the past 3 decades with their wacky wisdom and innovative music.
