The Wilderbeats perform original songs about nature for the young and young-at-heart. The group consists of Joyce Saunders and Shannon Lynch, two Nova Scotian musicians who share a background in youth-focused environmental education.
Since 2001, The Wilderbeats have been inspiring children of all ages with high energy performances that are not only a pile of fun, but also educational. Through song and story, audiences are transported to a magical place where fascination and connection with the natural world can occur. Interactive songs energize the body, clever lyrics expand the mind, and beautiful harmonies lift the spirit. The Wilderbeats are great entertainers, but they also encourage listeners to be creative and curious, to explore the outdoors, and to care for the earth.
The Wilderbeats have performed across Canada in hundreds of venues, including festivals, schools, libraries, museums, conferences, and private functions. Original Wilderbeats band members Ashley Moffat (AKA "Little Miss Moffat") and Joyce Saunders produced two albums which earned nominations for "Children's Recording of the Year" from East Coast Music Awards and Nova Scotia Music Week.
The Wilderbeats are
"…pioneer hunters on safari with a quiver full of songs and a herd of kids along to beat the bushes. The genius of the duo is their ability to animate the world of nature in lyric with a thrilling and raw matter-of-factness that keeps catching you off guard." Rural Delivery
"Beyond inspiring kids to combine creativity with science to celebrate and protect the environment, the duo also brings new sounds and musical styles to audiences, including hip hop, rap and reggae, creating a unique sound in the childhood music genre." Our Children: Atlantic Canada's Family Magazine.
"Above being children's musicians, The Wilderbeats are good musicians as well. They write a good lyric, and a good chorus." Ryan Fletcher, www.unconformed.com
