The Very Big Penguin band
Peter Cook and Richard Dray perform on an array of instruments with performances especially devised for schools and small venues.
We play a repertoire of music comprising jazz, folk and hauntingly beautiful melodies from around europe, and the Americas. This duo will mesmorize the audience whilst educating and entertaining too.
For schools, plan your performance with us to address key areas of the national curriculum. We can perform to up to 140 young people at a time adn we include all kinds of participation activities to engage and delight both chidlren and teachers. Occasionally we bring in other musicians, perform with school bands and lead accompanying workshops to developideas from the performances. Below are a few examples to listen to.
