Johnny Bregar

Johnny Bregar is a seasoned performer for children between the ages of 2 and 9. He is known for his engaging live concerts that delight kids and parents alike. His original songs and arrangements of familiar children's songs have a rootsy, jazzy, bluesy sound. He has recorded three CDs in his Ballard studio and appears on two Putumayo compilations, "Picnic Playground" and "A Family Christmas. Says Warren Truitt, Senior Children's Librarian at The New York Public Library's Early Childhood Resource and Information Center. “Bregar's been doin' his homework…originals like "Blue Dog," "Blackberry Pie," and "Owl" are wonderfully authentic, to the point where you would think they're Americana relics. Bregar has a knack, as well, for super catchy country pop: listen to the shimmery "Airplane" and the awesome choruses of "Best Friend" and "Summertime.””

Johnny’s songs are about everyday life as a child. He reaches across cultural and geographic boundaries with tunes that spark children’s imaginations and are comfortable and familiar. Johnny strives to make his music educational as well as fun. Very few of his songs are written simply to be silly –- he aims to strike a chord with kids by providing vignettes that echo the way they think about the world around them, while at the same time remaining fun and accessible. His music has been reviewed positively by NPR’s All Things Considered (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=6576654) as well as ParentMap, Zooglobble.com, Parenting Magazine, and many others.
