After five decades of writing, recording and performing, Fred Penner is a master of creating connection with audiences both young and young at heart.
In this episode, Fred shares the story of his career, and lessons he’s learned about how artists can see their role as creators and curators of experiences, and build a meaningful legacy along the way.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself travelling back in time to your own childhood (or even adulthood!) memories of Fred’s music, as we speak to the man and the legend himself.
