Perfect for pre-schoolers through age 7, Miss Jamie and her puppet friends from the farm take the audience on a magical barnyard adventure in a sing-along, dance-along show that's fun for kids and grownups alike.
The interactive performance features well-known farm songs as well as original tunes like "Happy Chickens Lay Yummy Eggs" and "Keepin' it Pesticide Free," and teaches healthy eating and responsible farming in a fun way that leaves everyone stompin' their boots and hollerin' for more.
Sing, dance, laugh and learn with Miss Jamie and her farmyard friends!
Jamie "Miss Jamie" Martin is an actress and country singer turned mom and children's music performer. Her young daughter, Taylor Gibson, is the inspiration behind her new musical journey, and Jamie now strives to educate and entertain young kids while giving hard working parents a much deserved break in their day.
Jamie has been acting and singing professionally since she herself was a young one, and she brings her background of musical theatre, as well as growing up on a ranch in Texas to the kids of the big city of Chicago and the surrounding areas for the live show. The CD is the show...TO GO, and is a welcome addition to any car ride or day at home.
Miss Jamie's show takes kids on a musical tour of the farm, with the help of farm friends Sweet Jen the Hen, The Great and Powerful Chickie of the Farm, Willie the Out of Work Horse, Prissy the hot Pig, Benny the Barista (Lamb), Courtney the Exercise Cow, and Freddie the Slow Fox. The animal characters all play against stereotype and teach kids that you can't judge a book by it's cover while keeping them laughing all the while.
The kids also get to become "Forever Farmhands," who vow to protect and preserve farms throughout the land. This instils in them a sense of responsibility for knowing where their food comes from and that it should be raised and harvested responsibly. The show is an opportunity to teach kids about how they can make healthy choices in their meals and snacks and will hopefully influence their future purchasing behavior - going organic and free range to support animal, soil, and small farm health. There's even a song that gets them exercising. Mostly, though, the kids just love to hear the funny farm animals talk and sing along to their favorite songs.
There are funny 'grown up' anecdotes, too. Prissy the Pig takes great pride in her cute appearance and suggests that since pigs don't really roll in the mud because they're dirty, but actually just to cool off, she'd like to ditch the 'dirty' reputation and would prefer instead that pigs be known in the future as the 'hot' farm animal. Benny the Baaaaarista prides himself on knowing everyone's favorite coffee drink (Mary had a little latte). Courtney the Cow is a workout and diet fanatic and no doubt will try to sell you on the latest protein shake and workout DVD. Freddy the Fox is too slow to steal eggs, and Sweet Jen the Hen never gabs or gossips with the others in the hen house. And then there's Willie the out of work horse who's on a job hunt now that horses aren't needed to pull farm equipment and have been replaced by tractors.
You can find Miss Jamie from the Farm performing her live show in Illinois at Farmers Markets, zoos, museums, play spaces, grocery stores, libraries, schools, camps, and more. And now the show is yours to enjoy on CD, no matter where you are.
