A hit at home in Canada, Scout & The Gumboot Kids is also picking up accolades from all over the world. The Vancouver-created kids’ TV series has been recognized by the prestigious Le Prix Jeunesse International in Munich and The Japan Prize.

One of the ingredients of the show’s success is the music of Jessie Farrell. A Canadian country music artist, Farrell has lately been turning her attention to kids music inspired by her two children. She has released three albums of family-friendly music, and her songs are featured on Scout & The Gumboot Kids. She also stars in her own spinoff series, Jessie & The Gumboot Kids, on CBC Kids.

Later this month, Farrell will be part of The Gumboot Kids Live Show in Vancouver.
