Campfire Kev Show & Other Radio Favorites
"Campfire" Kevin Holladay is an award-winning storyteller and singer/songwriter combining years of experience as a classroom teacher, circus clown, and theatre professional into a performance style like no other. From theme-based educational programming to all out entertainment, Campfire Kev has thrilled and delighted audiences of all ages in classrooms, on stages, and under Big Tops from sea to shining sea. With his first CD, The Campfire Kev Show and Other Radio Favorites, he brings it all to the table in an imaginative "broadcast day" of fictional radio station, WKEV, Kev Radio. In the fall of 2005 this CD earned a prestigious National Parenting Publications Honors Award, and TWO Children's Music Web Awards, including Best Song for Kids 5-8, and Best New Artist for Kids 8-11! "A feast for the ears, and fun for everyone." John Wood, Kidzmusic.com "For a children's record, the songs are sophisticated. The musicianship is inspired throughout and, although the songs are aimed squarely at kids, they don't condescend or dumb themselves down." Dave Coonce, Audibles The CD is packed with surprises, including a hidden musical track and recordings of Kev's brothers and sister from over 30 years ago! Three different bands lent their various styles to the project, and many of Kev's former students provided voice talent to the scripted pieces. Behind the scenes CD secrets: *The CD art is modeled after the cover of an album called "The Golden Voice of Frank Sinatra." *The radio on the back was photographed at Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. *The recording was paid for, in part, by a grant from the Indiana Arts Commission. 'In all my years as a children's librarian, I have never come across a performer as outstanding as Kevin Holladay." Rose Powers, Chicago Public Library "The kids ranging in age from three to twelve years old were stopped still in their tracks, watching, laughing, and participating with Kevin. He has something to offer everyone, incorporating education and fun at the same time." Melissa McCauley, Director Bardstown Child Care Program, Bardstown, KY Check out Campfire Kev's newest CD, The Pet Project, recorded with multiple award-winning artist, Mary Lafleur.
