Al deCant

Enthusiasm is catching! Al deCant is an award winning concert performer and educator who has entertained and educated thousands of young people through his programs of music and storytelling. Al’s family concerts combine excitement, warmth and vitality to create a lively and exhilarating experience for children and their parents. Al’s music and character education themes are being used in schools and classrooms throughout Connecticut.

Parents, teachers, and children immediately respond to the catchy tunes and lyrical wit of this veteran singer/songwriter/educator. Al’s original comic and soulful songs are enjoyed as much by adults as they are by children. Audiences engage in an interactive program of dancing, singing, clapping, and marching, about caring, friendship, family, the environment, and the silly things in life.

Al’s musical styles have been compared to many artists from James Taylor to Randy Newman to Elvis, but he clearly expresses his own unique style of children’s music. With high-energy tunes spanning genres from traditional folk to rock and roll to Afro-Reggae rhythms, Al knows how to engage his audience into having one heck of a good time. Al says, “There is nothing more exciting when families and friends are singing, dancing and making music together.”
