Today marks the beginning of Simouth Folk Week, and with it a chance to reminisce as the music of Bagpuss fills the air …
“Bagpuss, Dear Bagpuss, Old Fat Furry Catpuss…” Did you know that Sandra Kerr and John Faulkner composed and performed all the music for the classic BBC kids’ show Bagpuss? Sandra was the voice of Madeleine the Ragdoll and several of the mice, while John was Gabriel the Toad. Re-live those classic songs in a great show for kids of all ages. Original cast members Sandra and John are joined by Nancy Kerr (playing Emily) and James Fagan (Professor Yaffle the Woodpecker). An interactive and often hilarious performance, with loads of chances to join in, “Bagpuss” is a wonderful nostalgic show suitable for all ages.
Simouth FolkWeek opens today and runs til August 6th. Click here for more about this family friendly festival.
If you can’t make it, you can pick up a CD of the Bagpuss songs on Amazon.
