FROG & HENRY (Kitchener, ON)

FROG & HENRY (Kitchener, ON)

Frog & Henry is a two-man-one-man-band, playing pre-war and original music from around the world, on up to a dozen or more instruments. These instruments include a foot-operated upright bass – called a “fotdella” – and a foot-controlled tuba of their own invention – called “The Tuba Machine.” Yes, a “two-man-one-man-band” is technically just… a band with two people in it… except that Frog & Henry play as many as 6 different instruments simultaneously, creating the illusion of a much larger ensemble.

Their performances feature new inventions, usually in the form of new foot-operated contraptions. This year’s contributions being the “guitar-machine” and Belgian-made “foot-bass accordion,” their repertoire also changes and expands to include music from different countries and cultures, so that each audience can expect a unique performance.
