The Oot n’ Oots make kids music that is, to quote Jerry Garcia, not for kids only. Drawing on diverse influences from the history of rock n’ roll, this is a band with chops, soul, and swagger.
Their original songs are wildly imaginative, brimming with humour and inspiration.
The band is fronted by 11-year-old vocalist Ruth Cipes with her dad Ezra (vocals, guitar) and uncles Ari (vocals, guitar), Gabe (vocals, bass), and Matthew (vocals, drums). Ruth trades lead vocal duties with Ari, who has a melodic tenor and cache of silly voices and characters.
Nominated for Children’s Artist of the Year at the 2017 Western Canadian Music Awards, and for a 2017 Okanagan Arts Award, their debut album “Songs and Tales from the Great Blue Whale” was released December 2016. The second album "Electric Jellyfish Boogaloo" was released May 25 before the band hit the road to play Canadian folk festivals summer 2018.
