The best kept secret in music


"Fox and Branch offer quality music for Milwaukee families"

Originally, the idea of hip kids' music sounded like a good one. After all, since parents have to endure the same kiddie songs over and over, shouldn't they at least get to enjoy them? With that thought in mind, lots of bands cropped up, claiming to be part of a new-school movement of music appealing to both kids and adults.

Unfortunately, these days the kids' music market is so saturated with bands claiming to be "family friendly" and "smart and hip" that it takes just as much time as it did before to wade through and separate the quality from the crap. The best family music, it seems, comes from musicians who don't try too hard to make "hip" kids' music. Once again, sincerity and lack of pretension go a long way.

Such is the case with Fox and Branch, a folk duo that truly falls into the "family music" category because it plays timeless music that appeals to fans of all ages. -

Everyone has fun at a Fox and Branch show. That has been the duo’s guiding principle for the past decade, especially since performing for children and parents became their main focus. Dave Fox and Will Branch strive to create a communal atmosphere of fun and high spirits wherever they play. Audience members are invited to sing along, to dance, and to come onstage to try their hand at the washboard and other musical instruments. Fox and Branch consider themselves to be working in the tradition of great children’s performers like Pete Seeger and Ella Jenkins. A Fox and Branch show is as much a celebration of being together as it is a musical performance.
