Fred Penner & JP Hoe

This week, Steve and Diana chat with none other than legendary musician and children’s performer Fred Penner! Fred discusses his long and illustrious music career, which started helping troubled teens early on in his life and how two big mortality checks in his life drove him to search for his bliss. Plus, he explains how he’s survived the critics thanks to his wife’s wise words, ‘It’s none of your business.’

Fred introduces us to Winnipeg singer-songwriter and musician JP Hoe! Steve was mesmerized by JP’s ingenious video for his song, ‘Beautifully Crazy,’ and JP explains the importance of the Winnipeg arts scene, his holiday album and how he met Fred Penner over olives and soft cheese.
