NANAIMO – Norman Foote performs with students from Brechin and Park Avenue elementary schools.

A Juno Award-winning children’s entertainer gets some support from Nanaimo students for a concert at the Port Theatre.

Norman Foote brings songs from his new album Always Be Yourself to the stage Monday (Nov. 4) at 7 p.m.

The Vancouver-based performer created a special niche and amassed a cross-generational following by mixing clever hooks, witty wordplay and comedy into his music.
