What's the Big Idea

by Gary Rasberry

A funky folk album for families, What's The Big Idea?!? is children-powered but it's also for non-children. The songs hold distant echoes of Pete Seeger, a splash of Fred Penner and the beautiful vibe of songs sung around the campfire.

Album Notes
Gary Rasberry’s What’s the Big Idea?!? is a funky folk album for families featuring fabulous Old Time duo Sheesham & Lotus. The music is alive with fiddle, banjo and upright bass. What’s the Big Idea?!? is children-powered but it’s also for non-children. It’s a record for people who want to sing out loud, connect, laugh and make music together. The songs hold distant echoes of Pete Seeger, a splash of Fred Penner and the beautiful vibe of songs sung around the campfire. The Big Idea is a record for several hundred people gathered together in song. It’s a record for a family of four. It’s a record for you.

Parent Alert: What’s the Big Idea?!? will easily survive multiple listenings in your home or car without causing even the slightest parental twitch or tremor! (You may be familiar with those nervous tics often times induced by repeated—and repeated and repeated—listenings to your children’s favourite records.) The Big Idea is all good news! The children are happy while the parents avoid unwanted and potentially hazardous psychological unhinging. In fact, parental units may find themselves playing The Big Idea in the car in the absence of their lovely children.

What’s the Big Idea also features The Funky Mamas and Tannis Slimmon (from Guelph, Ontario) along with the acoustic trio Fireweed & members of The Gertrudes (Kingston, Ontario).
